Welcome to Day 9 of our Challenge! Today, we are going to take all the work we did yesterday and make it count. We will do this by turning those keywords into riveting titles using the method that I will show you.
Break Down the Keywords into Riveting Titles
Now go into the document of keywords you just saved. You can organize it into keyword categories or by the menu options you have on your blog or by the number of Google searches.
I learned this simple strategy from Brandon Gaille and this post to help with building titles that will rank in Google. Here it is. Odd number+ Power word+Long tail keyword. That’s it!
A couple things to note is to keep your keywords together. For example, if your keyword phrase is creative content marketing ideas. You would then turn that into 7 Free Creative Content Marketing Ideas. It is awesome how easy, yet effective that one simple strategy is!
If you don’t exactly know what power words are, there is a great list on the Brandon Gaille’s blog post.
As you begin to come up with titles, type or copy and paste them into another Google document. You want them to be accessible for future use.
Put Those Amazing Ideas to Use!
Now that you have some incredible blogging ideas, let’s get to work! If you have not been using an editorial calendar at this point, now is a good time to start. You can use a simple planner or just a blank calendar.
Here are a few ideas of how to break your titles down into an editorial calendar.
- Theme Week-You choose a theme for every week of the month and then fill it with the titles that relate to that particular theme.
- Set Days- For a while, I had set days on my blog. Tuesdays was business Thursdays was organization and Saturday was a parenting tip. If you do this, assign a subject to every day that you blog. I used my blog menu to create my subjects so that I would be adding content to my menu evenly. After you assign a subject, then assign each Tuesday of the month a title within that subject.
After you input your amazing titles into an editorial calendar, let us know in the Facebook group! Feel free to invite your friends to come and grow with us!
