Words that Make an Impact on Blog Traffic

Blog words

Using certain impactful or ‘power’ words in your blog posts is known to attract more traffic than generic, bland alternatives. This is particularly so in the case of the title, which needs to immediately grab the attention of the reader and make them want to find out more.

It is said that our average attention span is now eight seconds, and assuming that we read one word per second, it’s clear that our blog post titles need to be pretty darn compelling.

Try these power words in your titles and blog posts, and see if they make a difference to visitor numbers:

  • You
  • Because
  • Best
  • Free
  • Tips
  • How to
  • Why
  • Surprising
