Most people will decide to read your article based solely on it’s title. But are your titles as strong as they could be to get that all important click?
With the WP-Experiments-Free plugin you can test your titles and determine which is your best post title. Our goal is to get more clicks and generate more revenue, and I know we’re all really interested in making more money!
Use the process of A/B Split Testing to try different variations of your post titles to get a higher click through rate. It’s very simple to add multiple versions of an article title that will be randomly displayed in any post list. Each time the article is listed it is counted as an impression. Each time the article is visited it is counted as a view. This will easily let you see what percentage of impressions get clicked on for each title.
First step is to download the plugin WP-Experiments-Free to your hard drive. Unzip it and send it up via ftp into your wp-content/plugins folder. Now login to your blog and activate the plugin.
When you bring up your add new post page you will see the option to +Add New Title under the first title block. Try to come up with two or three variations of good titles that contain SEO Friendly keywords. Finish up your post and publish it. After you feel your page has gotten enough traffic, just log back in to your admin area and bring up a post in EDIT mode to see the click thru statistics. Once you’re satisfied that you have determined which title works best for your post, just delete the ones that didn’t perform as well.
