Headlines can make or break an article.

It’s arguably one of the most important aspects of writing an article. Whether you’re a freelance writer, a copywriter or even a renowned blogger. Headlines are the giant door that leads your readers to your article.

Fail at the first impression, that sweet traffic of yours might not be as sweet as you expected.

If your award-winning article has a terrible headline, no reader will read it. It's harsh but it’s true.

The Numbers!

80% of readers never make it past the headlines! According to a few sources, 8 out of 10 people will read the headline copy, but only 2 out of 10 will read the rest.

You can even argue that headlines are more important than the content itself, That’s insane!

It also doesn’t help when you’re competing with roughly 2 million blogs that are posted daily. Let’s just say your odds are slim to none.

Of course, you can increase your chances with the help of SEO and using the right keywords but it can only go so far.

Below are 3 websites that will not only help you write killer headlines but also help you choose the type of headlines that’s most effective. Thank me later :)


Before We Start, Here's A Few Tip To Improve Your Headline

One of the worst things you can do when writing a headline is having no benefit written on it.

Which one's better,

  1. 5 Keyword Website.
  2. 5 Free Keyword Website To Boost 3X Your Traffic.

Now it's not the best example but I bet most of you pick number 2 because there's a benefit inside.

Here are other tips to help you on your way,

  • Keep Online Headlines Less Than 70 Characters.
  • Offer Then Squash Objection (Ex: YouTube secrets, how I make $2000 a month and no filming)
  • Don't use a full stop at the end.
  • Avoid Round Numbers (2,4,6,8, etc)

Inbound Now

Inbound Now has a free app on its website called Blog Title Idea Generator.

Even though the “Generate Title Ideas” might not work now (at least for me). There are tons of template that will help you write your headline for example:

  • [Number] Little-Known Factors That Could Affect Your [Blank]

  • How To Solve Your [Keyword] Problems With [Solution Keyword]

  • How to Use [Solution Based Keyword] to [Desirable Outcome Keyword]

  • The [Insert Well Known Industry Expert] Way to [Problem Solving Keyword]

  • Here's a Quick Way to [solve a problem]

There are still more templates you can use ranging from informative to absolutely hilarious to help you attract your reader's attention. I’m 100% sure you won’t let a chance like that miss.

It might not be as helpful as the other site below because you can't type the keyword you want to use but it's absolutely practical! Try it for yourself!

Hubspot Ideas Generator

No, it’s not Hubpages. It’s Hubspot!

Unlike Inbound Now’s app, Hubspot will help you generate ideas using keywords you want to use for your article.

Hubspot will give you headlines that are designed for bloggers to capture the reader's attention with eye-catching headlines that’ll immediately intrigue potential readers.

How you’re presented with the result is absolutely user friendly and pleasing to your eyes with its flashcard type of answers to make it easier for you to find that special headline!

You might not get as much result as the other websites but it does get the job done.


CoSchedule will be your lifesaver!

This is absolutely helpful for writers especially copywriters to help them write their article’s headlines.

It’s used to analyze headlines and give you a report of how effective the headline is. It’s absolutely useful to test various different types of headline that you might use.

CoSchedule gives you easy to read to which audience will find it appealing the most to your headline.

Even though CoSchedule doesn’t give you other headline choices, you can always try other types of headlines to find which best suites for you.

BONUS: Answer The Public

Congratulations! You reached the end of this ridiculously short and informative post!

For your reward, I have one more website to help you not only find killer headlines but also brainstorm ideas for your next content!

This website is helpful to any kind of writer as it gives you hundreds of ideas based on the keyword you typed in.

The way Answer The Public shows you the result will also get you coming back with its easy to read flowchart. The flowchart will show the most popular search from the words you’ll use.


Even though all these websites are extremely helpful, content is still king!

Try writing your content first then headline later for the maximum result!

If you write a killer headline with mediocre content, that won’t help you in any sense of the way. So always keep that in your mind.
