Sure there will always be people who over-promise and under-deliver, who go for outlandish titles that bear little relation to the dull and dreary content that follows, but these sites will quickly be seen for what they are ... and if they give people no reason to link to them then they won't be anywhere near the top of the SERPs, so it really doesn't matter what their <title> is.
    Alright! Well said. I like that happy medium thing. Writing should be fun that way.

    The thing that I would say is indeed Content is King but SEO is the Queen and Titles and Sub-Titles are soldiers because they guide you through the article. Many people do not have the patience to read through an entire article and they just skim it by looking at the subtitles. So, to make an articles well-read, sub-titles also become important.

    This is really a very true speech that content is king and tittle is queen. The tittle will help you to grab the attention of readers. Only a good tittle can insist a reader to read the full content of your article. That's mean without a good and attractive tittle, your content is nothing in my opinion. If you want to grow your business you must have to look after your tittle and content. By creating a great content you can reach to your goal

    And what is your best tip for Content for Humans? Please, if you wish to discuss SEO, the appropriate forum is the Internet Marketing Forum in the Business & Legal Area. Please do read forum announcements at the top of each area, as well as the stickied important guideline posts in each forum so that you know what is appropriate for that area and what is not.

    Actually, I think the answer applies both for email marketing and SEO. A good title will get higher open rates when sending an email, and will also attract more clicks when your article shows in the SERPS. That is what SEO experts call "winning the click".
    Not only in those cases, but in all of your forms of marketing.

    Let's say you write a good, informative article. You create a great title for it, and you have to adapt it to:
    Facebook
    Twitter
    Youtube
    Your Blog
    Email Marketing.
    Etc.

    That way, the work you've done will be maximized in all possible channels.

    Again, great titles win the click.

    This is so true! I really believe that the best content will prevail; at least that is what Google is aiming for!
    But the title is still one of the biggest factors to rank well. At least for now!!

    After the last penguin update back in August 2012, quality and fresh content is necessary. Google not only see the uniqueness of content but also its importance to viewers in the form of bounce rate. So jorgepson is right that we need to add some catchy lines and ideas to make people spend some time on your website or blog. Now the most effective technique to grab visitor attention is a catchy title that explains the whole theme of your article and makes the reader more curious about your writing. Secondly, the story telling tone of article or blog. It is more useful to add some unique information in your writing to keep the viewer curious.

    Yes, you are absolutely right. A good and catchy title is very important to attract visitors. At the same time the title should not drift the reader away from the main topic. The word 'catchy' needs to be interpreted in the right manner. The title should be both catchy and relevant to the main topic.
