When you publish an article, you want lots of views on it. It’s not as simple as hoping it will do well without a push.

- You want to write content that generates a tonne of social shares… That is the WRONG thinking. Content does affect the amount of social shares you’re getting.
- When I get lots of likes on Facebook and re-tweets, I am getting LESS TRAFFIC. This means that people aren’t even reading my content and are sharing it ahead of time.
It’s not about the content, it’s about the headline. 8/10 might read your headline. But only 2/10 read your article. If you want to generate more social shares, it is all about the headline.
1.Make sure your headline is around 5–7 words.
2.Use adjectives like Effortlessly. Everyone wants the easy route.
3.Create some mystery: “10 Benefits of Green Tea. Number 6 will shock you.” Everyone now wants to know what number 6 in that list is! Don’t trick them though.. You want your audience to be happy when they read number 6 otherwise they won’t trust you.
