If you're looking for a way to attract more views and improve SEO then start with your title. A great title should relate to searches for content similar to its' own.
Think about what you search every day on search engines and how simple that is. You're looking for the quickest information on something & want to skip irrelevant content. That's why clicking a title best mentioning what you're looking for works. It's quicker & simpler, and of course you can read it's summary, so you make sure the first few lines also stay on topic.
A title doesn't have to contain every thing. It just has to contain enough information for the audiences it aims to attract. Its' words like hashtags. Seriously, a title should have hot words, like hashtags, placed in a short & precise sentence.
In the title for this article, "Audience Growth: Attract Views & Make Your Content Stand Out with Relevant Titles", I've used these words:
This title targets other content creators who're looking to increase their views, who want their content to stand out, and whose creativity may be lacking when it comes to their title.
The very first thing any reader sees is the title so it has to relate to what they're searching, that's one of the reasons why creating content on trending events can be highly lucrative; There's a high number of people searching for content on that topic.
I don't always stick to these rules, sometimes freestyling a title to fit more with how I'm feeling artistically. And if it's something important/useful to my audiences then I make sure my title is spot on.
No matter what site you're using or what content you're creating, as long as you're not unintentionally misleading people by having them click on content that's irrelevant to what they're looking for. People know what they want.
This may seem basic to some of you creators out there but it's important to know. Grow your audience, grow your content & grow your ROI over time.
