Featured headlines can help build your trust and authority in the online world. This article teaches you how to write a featured headline.

A featured headline is a big part of a blog post and often the hardest thing to create. Clients frequently ask me, “How can I write my featured headline?”

Writing a featured headline is one of the most important parts of a blog post because it will catch your readers’ attention.

In this article, we’ll dive into all the details of writing a featured headline, including how to choose keywords, find inspiration, and incorporate keywords into your headlines.

When writing headlines some people are good at it and others struggle with it. Some people know what the headline should be even before they start writing the body of their blog post. Others spend hours trying to figure out what to write. The good news is you can figure out how to write a featured headline for your blog or website.


What have featured headlines?

Featured headlines are one of the most important components of a blog post because they are the first thing visitors see when they visit your site. If you can write a good headline, you can capture your readers’ attention before they even read your content.

A featured headline should be catchy but also informative and engaging. In short, it should be something you can’t wait to click on.

If you’re wondering how to write a featured headline, then you need to understand the psychology of why headlines work.

The truth is people scan a headline to see if it’s relevant to them. If it is, they will click on it; if it’s not, they won’t.

So, to write a featured headline, you need to understand the psychology of scanning.

This is where headlines come in.

Most people scan a headline from top to bottom. This means they look at the headline first and then read the body copy.

This is why you need to make your headlines sticky.

A sticky headline is a great way to stand out from the crowd. When your reader clicks on your headline, they will be intrigued and curious about the rest of your post.

The purpose of a featured headline

Your featured headline is supposed to grab your readers’ attention, so it should be short and clear. It’s not your typical “headline.”

It’s different from a headline because it’s the first thing your reader sees. It’s what will cause them to click through to your blog post, and it’s what will help you capture their attention.

Your featured headline should be written to state what your blog post is about clearly. The headline should tell your readers what they will read in your blog post.

It should be something that’s “unique” and “clear.”

The trick is, to be honest and avoid “clickbait” headlines such as “10 Things You’re Doing Wrong” or “7 Ways to Make Money Online.”

A good featured headline is short and to the point. It should make your readers want to read the rest of your post.

Why featured headlines are important

A featured headline is one of the most important parts of a blog post because it will catch your readers’ attention.

This is why featured headlines are often written by the writer rather than the blogger. They want to ensure a strong headline that will draw readers into reading more.

Some authors even write their featured headlines before writing the rest of the article. You should consider this if you have trouble writing your featured headlines.

While this might seem like a lot of work, it’s worth it. If you can write a great headline that interests your readers in the post, you’ll see a surge of traffic you never thought possible.

But how do you create a featured headline? It’s easier than you think. Here are 11 ways to write a featured headline to get your readers’ attention. Let’s start with the first thing you need to know about featured headlines: Featured Headlines Are Different Than Other Headlines. First, you should understand that featured headlines differ from regular ones. This is because they’re more specific and have less space.

Get people to click on your headlines.

There are two main types of headlines. One type is “lead” headlines, usually short and to the point. They are useful for linking to the full post on a site like Medium.

The other type of headline is “feature” headlines, which are usually long and descriptive. They are useful for attracting more readers to a post and giving them a reason to click through to your blog.

Both types of headlines should contain a strong “call to action” (CTA).

For example, if you’re writing about how to get more traffic, you could use something like “How to Get More Traffic in 2018.” This CTA is a “call to action” because it tells the reader what to do.

The “action” here is “get more traffic.”

You can also use a “call to action” when writing about a product. For example, write something like “The Best Product Ever.”
