Coming up with blog post titles can be difficult, and if you are using a content calendar, often you will need to come up with multiple titles at once. Here are 3 methods for creating blog titles. Bonus: Use our Blog Title Generator

1. Plug and Play

This method has to be one of the easiest. Simply visit one of your favorite blogs and scan through their titles. Then substitutes the verbs, nouns or numbers with your own. Here is an example using some of our own titles.

You get the idea. While scanning through the titles try to quickly make each title work for your niche, no matter how ridiculous the title may seem. If you can’t create a new title in 10 seconds move on to another title, write down any blog titles that might work and choose the best titles from your list.

2. Keyword Research

The Google Keyword Tool is an immensely helpful tool when choosing which keywords to target. When you type in a keyword or two into the tool it will tell you the search data for your given keywords. It also gives you search data for similar or related keywords. Often these suggested phrases will ignite a blog post title idea or you can simply plug these suggested keywords into other titles like method 1 above.

3. Use A Mind Map

Keegan Larson recently wrote a wonderful post detailing how to use a mind map for generating blog post topics. This method for coming up with blog post titles works well as an individual as well as with a group. Often multiple authors blogging for the same site will start to develop their own niche within the site when it comes to types of post. A mind map is a great way to visualize this and make sure the blog is diversified.
