What title's have gotten you the most readers?

    We all know that titles are what grabs the attention of readers for authors of all types of media. What are the titles you've had the most success with and what formulas have you used.

    My best are:

    One thing I'll not do is make a mention of money in the title. It's sooo cheap a strategy. wink

    I don't answer these sorts of questions, as I'd prefer to not have my best Hubs ripped-off by unethical web page builders.

      But HubPages has its own "Best Hubs" and "Hot Hubs" indicator.  Don't they somehow give your hubs away?

    The ones that attract the most readers are those that do well in the SERPs.  And those tend to be ones with the keywords early in the title, followed by something readable that someone would click on.  Something like:

      Ha ha, I know that's just an example title, but I found it funny (in a good way).  Titles that work well are ones with numbers (Five Tips to Write Better Tips Articles) and those that talk about controversial or popular topics.

    For me I just play with words or think of what I am writing and a title pops in my head. Granted they aren't too popular but that's okay with me. I know my titles are fun and sometiems clever. lol

    My current highest traffic hub is "Season 6 Medium TV Allison DuBois Smash NBC / CBS Show".  This was really just a joke based on watching lots of my daughter's Medium episodes.  Because season 6 is about to begin in the US, lots of fans are finding my hub.  It was never intended to 'earn' and doesn't have significant keywords but generates lots of lowish value, TV-related clicks.

    Often Hubs I really enjoy writing do surprisingly well in terms of traffic even though they aren't SEOed!

    The hubs I've written that are getting the best traffic are ones from the ideabank here at HP.

    Susana - good point.  I recently tried the ideas bank and wrote about a topic I knew about but thought was of no interest - however traffic has been surprisingly good.
