Many people underestimate the power of headlines. The fact is a headline can easily make or break an article. So how do you write better ones?
CoSchedule Headline Analyzer offers a good solution.
All you have to do is put in your post title to receive an overall quality rating on a scale of 0-100 and a rating on ability to result in social shares, as well as individual metrics such as the headline’s emotional impact. The more emotional a headline is the more likely it is to get clicked.
Lastly, Headline Analyzer will show you how the headline will look in search engine results pages and in an email.
You have heard of A/B split testing, right? The scientific principle is to separate your audience into two random groups and show something different to each group to see which gets a better response. For example, you could use two different landing pages to see which converts better. For this, I like Optimizely.
It has a simple user interaction and is quite powerful. You can be up and running your split testing in a matter of minutes.
A simple but elegant social sharing plug-in, the Digg Digg bar follows as a reader scrolls down the page. It allows the reader to share the article on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and a bunch of other social platforms.
While many similar plug-ins exist, I like Digg Digg because it appears to be the most functional and for me, the vertical scroll is a must.
Everybody wants their websites to load fast. The problem is that the onus isn’t always on the viewers and their Internet speed.
Sometimes, the webmaster has to work to make the website’s performance faster as well. That’s where a plug-in like WP Super Cache comes in handy. Among other things, this plug-in will store static content (content that doesn’t change often), which pre-loads when the visitor comes to check it out, drastically reducing load time.
