Just plug one of these proven blog headline templates into your blog and you'll have an irresistible blog headline in less time than it took you to read this sentence.
Your blog headline is vitally important for several reasons:
First, your headline is what determines whether someone will read your post or skip it. Secondly, your headline plays a key role in how well your blog post ranks in the search results. Strategic use of keywords can help your blog to rank higher in the search engines.
Speaking of search results, your title will determine whether people click through to your post when you show up in the results. Fourthly, your title also determines how your article shows up on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook etc as well as on RSS readers.
And finally, if you;re sending your latest blog post out to your list, you may want to use your blog headline as a subject line. And of course, the more compelling your subject line, the more likely it is that they'll click on the link and read your blog.
Now that you know how important a good blog headline is, let me share some proven headline templates that you can use to write captivating blog headlines.
The How-To Headline
How-To headlines are always popular because people are always searching for how to do something. If your blog post teaches people how to do something, then you can't go wrong with a how-to headline.
Here are some examples.

How To Save $300 On Your Grocery Bill Each Month.
A variation on the how-to headline is to use this template - [No of] Ways to [Achieve a Particular Outcome]. So an example of a headline written using that template would be

The Why Headline Template
This is another good headline to use. Use it for posts when you're explaining why something is good, bad, dangerous, effective or whatever.
Here are some examples.

Why Some People Overcome Childhood Trauma & Others Never Do
A why headline is a curiosity provoking headline and we humans are curious creatures. People will want to know the answer to the "why" and thus they will read your blog post.
Ask A Question
A question headline is another good option. A question "opens a loop" in the readers mind and the only way to close the loop is to read the post.
An example of a question style blog post would be something like
