When creating List titles, how many is too many?


Readers love lists, so when you write an article or blog post that has a list, how do you choose to limit the list in the title? For example, "16 Unique Ways to Cut Your Toe Nails" or "25 Sure Fire Pick Up Lines That Will Get You Slapped In the Face." Do you first check the competition, or just go for it?

 

sort by best latest

    True, but the number in the title is an enticement. Do you click on the search result that shows "The best ways to Cut Fat" "5 Ways to Cut Fat" or "The Top 20 Ways to Cut Fat" ? I usually go with the larger number just to see if I missed anything.
