    Hello fellow hubbers. I just completed writing a new article and I need your opinions as to which of the below titles would grab a reader's attention:
    1. Where Is Hell? A New Take That Will Surprise You
    2. Where is Hell? You Will Be Surprised Where It Could Be
    3. Hell May Not Be Where You Think It is
    4. Where is Hell?  A Layman's View of it's Location

    From my suggestions above you could make a pretty good guess what the article is about. Any other title suggestions would be appreciated.

      If you're having trouble deciding on a title, this website can really help.
      I use it all the time to find out which word combinations rate the highest when writing titles.

    I like 1. best.

    #3 for me

    I'd choose Number 2 and 3. It captivated me more than the other options.

    I think #1 might be the most descriptive for where I "think" you are headed with this, but #3 might be the most attention-grabbing.

    I like #2. Can't wait to read!

    I think short titles that are to the point are more succesful in attracting readers. I would choose number 3. (Try typing it into Google and reading some of the results.)
    The title needs to be related to the article, but my personal favorite would be "How to go to hell"

    I think #3 reads the best and agree it is the best attention grabber.  Good luck!

    #3 grabs my attention best and makes me want to read the article.

    We all have a preconceived idea of where hell is (down below the earth) but then it may not even be where we think it is.

    Keep in mind that the internet is not the grocery store. What I mean by that is "attention grabbing headlines" are fine to catch the attention of someone who isn't necessarily looking for something to read and happens to be standing in line at the store and grabs your mag because you've sparked their interest and they must take it home to read. This is the internet....search friendly titles rule from everything I've experienced.

    If I'm completely honest, I hate that aspect because its rather boring but if you want traffic, make it search friendly over attention grabbing every time.

    Just my two cents.

    What Cre8tor says is very true. With that in mind, #4 might be the best of the bunch . . . or perhaps something completely different, depending on the actual content of the article.
    (except "it's" Location, should be "Its" Location.) no apostrophe.

    Cre8tor - Sad, but true.  Short, catchy titles seem to work best.  Besides, for people searching via phone or tablet, long titles can get truncated.  Besides, that title seems to be "in your face" a little more than the rest.  Cheers!
