This ‘how to blog better’ post will show you how to use the google keyword research tool to help you write blog titles and blog posts that attract traffic.

If you need a reminder or an explanation for using this tool, check out our post on using the google keyword tool.

The google keyword tool provides you with an indication of the number of people per month (locally and globally) who are searching with a particular keyword.

Blog Titles For Fashion Boutiques

If you are a fashion boutique selling skinny jeans, by typing ‘skinny jeans’ into the tool, it will provide you with an indication of the numbers looking for that keyword. However, it will also give you ideas of the kinds of questions people may be asking.

Using broad search – I can see that 4,400 people in Ireland are searching with ‘skinny jeans’ within their search term per month. 590 people per month have searched for ‘What to wear with skinny jeans’.  Using ‘exact search’, only 36 people have searched for it but it should still pay dividends if that is used as a blog post title.

Remember too that list posts prove popular with readers so titles such as

  • Ten Ways To Wear Skinny Jeans
  • 5 Shoe Styles That Look Great With Skinny Jeans
  • Skinny Jeans – How To Wear Them
  • 5 Tips To Make Your Skinny Jeans Look Stunning
  • The 5 Best Skinny Jeans For Women

Blog Titles For Outdoor Activity Businesses 

If you offer sporting or games activities, spend some time checking to see if significant numbers of people in your target area are searching for the activities you offer using specific terms and general terms, e.g. kayaking, canoeing, white water rafting, archery, rock climbing…..
Use lists for post titles and try to ensure the highest searched keyword is as close to the start of your blog title as possible.
Examples might include:
  • 10 Fun Activities For Kids
  • 7 Great Holiday Activities For Teenagers
  • Kayaking – Why It Is A Great Activity  For Families
  • Best Activities for Teenagers
  • All You Need To Know About Rock Climbing

Blog Titles For Interiors Shops  

If you own an interiors stop and sell wallpaper and fabric, writing blog posts describing the various wallpaper you stock won’t attract traffic to your website. Writing posts which answer questions and solve problems for your readers will results in traffic and sales – your blog should provide decorating ideas, solve problems, emphasise the benefits of various wallpapers and suggest various styles of wallpapers for different rooms.
Examples might include:
  • How To Wallpaper Your xxxx Room
  • Five Favourite Wallpapers for Dining Rooms
  • How To Wallpaper Rooms With Sloping Ceilings
  • 10 Wallpapering Tips To Make It Easy
  • Six Feature Wallpaper Ideas
  • How To Create A Striking Feature Wall
  • How To Decorate A Boy’s Bedroom
