Creating A Swipe File

Creating a swipe file for all your headline ideas is a fast and easy way to remember headlines and is great for motivation and inspiration for more posts. Plus you can also add in headlines that you like at any time.

I use Google Doc’s because its fast, free and everywhere. I can also make tabs for other writing swipe files.

Those five tools are a ‘godsend’ for me as I am just now focusing on writing blogs. You can really get some creative ideas for new titles by tweaking what they generate. 

With so many good titles do just rely on your intuition or experience to choose which title you think is best or do you use some sort of checklist to determine your #1?

    Greg · October 5, 2018 at 11:25 pm

    These are in no particular order so you can decide which one is number one for yourself.

I really like the feel of the article and it has so many great ideas to use for headlines … Though my question for you Greg is how do I manage to hone it down to just a few?? HELP! … I feel that there are so many choices that I get way overwhelmed … as a newbie … I find that I spend too much time looking at all the bright shiny things and not get myself settled down to the actual writing the actual blog. Fun video, Greg.

    Just don’t over think it, these are a few tools to help you so just pick one and use it.

Hey i really enjoyed this article, it was very informative.  I did not know about these headline generator sites.  After i leave this comment i am actually going to check out a couple of them sites to help me with headlines.  I always struggle to come up with good titles for my blogs that will get ranked high, hopfully these sites will solve my problem for me.  Thanks for sharing!

    Greg · October 5, 2018 at 5:10 am

    Awesome. Glad you found it helpful.

Pitin · October 5, 2018 at 4:56 am

Hi Greg,

Thank you so much for the list. I used to use the “title generator” but the site is always down nowadays. I recently experienced using the “seo pressor” but I always reach the limit before I can find a good title.

Now the “tweak your biz” is totally new to me. Thank you so much, it is very helpful indeed! I think I will be using it from now on. 

I explored the other three you mentioned but I don’t like the idea of clicking and clicking until I find what I like. So probably, I’ll stick with tweak your biz since I like the long list of options that I see in one shot!

Regards,

Pitin

    Greg · October 5, 2018 at 5:31 am

    Cool, thanks for your comments.

Derek Marshall · October 5, 2018 at 4:46 am

Hey! 

Alexander, thank you kindly for creating and sharing this with us all! I really glad I found this article and have bookmarked it for reference, which no doubt I will do later. 

Headlines and titles are something that is very important for a good CTR in the search engines. Using only the keyword phrase is kinda boring and does nt attract as many clicks – something I found out to my own expense!. 

    Greg · October 5, 2018 at 5:32 am

    Awesome.

Oscar · October 5, 2018 at 4:28 am

Hi,

yes, absolutely a great tool.  Why had I never heard about it?  I guess I am the type of person who wants to figure everything out himself!  And then I see these great tools and that is eyeopening and could save me lots of time and wasted energy.

I will be sure to look at these tools again and use them for my blogging,

Thanks for bringing such a great tool to awareness,

Oscar

    Greg · October 5, 2018 at 5:33 am

    You’re welcome. I’m glad you found this article helpful.

Alexander · October 5, 2018 at 3:35 am

This looks like it will be a big help to me with my Christianity blog. I do struggle with headlines and it can be difficult to form an exciting headline over a keyword like ‘God is in Control Scripture.’

But I did find one I like for this keyword from the seopressor tool that gave me ‘Simple Guidance For You About God Is In Control Scripture’

Overall, I like seopressor and tweakyourbiz the best. I think these will help me a lot. Thank you

    Greg · October 5, 2018 at 3:38 am

    Cool.

Linda · October 5, 2018 at 3:16 am

Anything that says free; always catches my eye. I have noticed that writing is a gift from God that I apparently have. I have also encountered that many people have trouble writing. This is a great deal for them. I hope many people come and cheek this tutorial out.. You have done a great job with this opportunity. 

    Greg · October 5, 2018 at 3:32 am

    Thank You, Linda.
