Headline is one of the most important elements for your blog post or article. It is quite common that, 9 out of 10 people will read the headline and only 3 out of then will read your complete article. If your headline is not attractive then no one will read it.
Please keep in mind that, while writing the headline do not go out of the topic.
It is normal for you as beginners that, you spent hours, days or weeks before starting your first blog. This is because of your fear and negative thoughts that come to your mind. Most of the people do not write articles due to this fear and negative thoughts.
But for writing articles keep such feelings aside and start writing.
A standard article may contain 500 to 1000 words. However in some cases such product comparison or any review it may go up to 2500 to 3000 words, an some news articles are written within 200 to 300 words. Number of word per article depends upon the topic, nature and purpose of the article.
For better readability, it must be well formatted into paragraphs. A long paragraph can be boring for the reader.
You may love reading articles of other successful writers or their writing style, but never copy any others article and their style. Copying others content or style of writing will have negative impact on your article. If your content has any copied sentences or paragraphs, it will not be ranked by the search engine or in some cases it is reported as plagiarised.
So try to write in your own style to be successful in this field. 100% original content have more chance to be ranked in search engines.
