Use “How To” Titles – It’s a great way to demonstrate helpfulness to a reader, and even better for SEO purposes because Google loves instructional content. An easy peasy template: How to _____ with _____

Ask Questions – Questions are a great way to resonate with your specific audience.  A common Q: What is Going on with _____?

Use Numbers & Lists – Readers love lists that are easy to digest so let them know directly that posts or pages have that. This is another great format that Google loves to reward in search results. A common template: # Proven Ways To _____

Use Solid Action Verbs – Now that you have some frameworks, boost the titles with the right verbs. Some favorites: Build, Create, Generate, Maximize
