    Cool Catchy Titles!

    I know that it has been written about before -- constantly -- but it is very important to have a title tag that is both catchy [to the reader] and containing the right keywords for search engine optimization.

    For those of you who write content, I have found that an article title like 99 High Paying Keywords: The Secret is Out! can be an effective way to draw visitors to you site. This particular title has netted me nearly one hundred visitors in 5 days, not bad considering that when I run PPC ads it costs me money and takes longer than that to attract visitors!

    There are several great content sites out there. EZine Articles is my favorite as it has netted me plenty of traffic.

    Can you tell us how did you found those keywords? They are extracted from a PPC engine or what?

    Wink Keywords, etc.

    Actually, the point of this thread was the article title and not the content. However, Structured Settlements and Mesothelioma are two of Overture's biggest paying words.

    The list is a combined Overture/AdSense payout amount. The figures will vary, sharply, but at the time I wrote the list the payout was $2-$100 per keyword.

    For most of us who are SEO savvy the list is nothing new. My point is that a catchy title will draw people in...I hooked the two of you now, didn't I?

    It is a good title, I'll give you that. You also have a wide target market - anyone who has a website and is frustrated with their CPC earnings would be attracted to your article.
