My vigorous research effort finally paid off as I stumbled upon a powerful formula in a forum I was participating. The person who said it didn’t know that, I needed that information so much. Thanks to my unknown friend. I further developed and tested that formula and guess what, my AdSense earning shoot up to two dollars a day. You estimate the monthly earning. May not be much, but I earn a descent income. As my hubs age and I master the art of creative and commercial writing and effective SEO and article marketing techniques, my hubs will rank well in search engines and I will make lot of money. Nothing is impossible.


I tested the formula in various blogs as a ghost blogger. Response was so encouraging that I decided to put together this hub to share what I have learnt. To make the story short…A catchy title and low competition keywords/key phrases got more organic traffic and increased my hub earnings.

Before I reveal the formula, I wish to show you few tricks. Learn them by heart. The formulae are actually made up of this tricks so pay close attention

5 Tricks to write a catchy hub title

1. Use number: Do you realize that many magazine newspapers or journals use number in their titles. They don’t use these numbers for nothing. Human are prone to quick comparisons and having the number in the titles quickly captures the reader’s attention.


2. Use interesting adjectives: Title is the road map of your entire article. Using interesting adjectives in your title will no doubt, wet the readers appetite to read more. Next time you publish a hub, try including interesting adjectives like; Fun, free, absolute, essential, strange, and effortless and see the response. There are countless adjectives you can use. Find out which one closely relates to your article.


3. Unique rationale: You may want to consider using words that make rationalize an even or an object. Try using words like; Reasons, principles, facts, lessons, ideas, ways, secrets etc.


4. Use trigger words: Now I call this trigger word simply because once seen or read, these words automatically equips the mind of the reader to look for an answer. You already had his attention captured. Use question words like; what, why, how and when. These words definitely trigger reaction.


5. Make an audacious promise: Boldly promise you readers to provide something valuable. What you want to do is to dare your reader to read your article. Don’t over promise but be bold and seductive in the most innocuous way possible. Be dangerous. AND. Deliver what you promise. If you don’t you lose big time.


The powerful formula

Here is the formula:

Number or Trigger Word+ Adjective + Keyword + Promise = Catchy title = More money

Let’s take some example

Say you your topic is Skinning a goat

You can write a titled “How to skin a goat” or “Why I love skinning a goat

Applying our formula above, you can title your hub like this;


Number or Trigger Word+ Adjective + Keyword + Promise = Catchy title = More money

10 strange ways to skin a goat in the paddock

Take another example “How to earn one thousand dollars in Hub Pages in less than one month

I figure this example to be a bit more dangerous. Better to use it when you actually have achieved the result yourself because critical readers will be asking for evidence. Don’t be caught red handed buy saying something you haven’t done yourself.


Conclusion

The bottom line is to deliver what your promise in your title. If you aren’t careful, you can loss more readers just as easy as your attracted them. Be honest with yourself and treasure your readers as they are the ones who will bring money into your account. Treat them bad, and you loss. Not them.

      We all strive to improve and it looks like your ideas might do just that. Advertisers and search engines live by a different creed than we do and trying to understand them isn't always easy.

      Very interesting! I think you're on to something. Promising something is a principle of good copywriting, so this makes sense. I will keep this idea in mind when constructing my titles. Take care!
