I constantly test my article titles. I will write boring ones on purpose to see
how they perform against others.
Which one of these titles do you think got more views?
Internet Marketing Tips - Start With Something Simple
The 7 Dirty Words Of Internet Marketing
You guessed it...by 5 times as many views.
People like sensational crap...it's human nature.
Another great performing title...Who Can You Trust?
When it comes to trust, you'll have them lining up at the door if you
can incorporate that question into your niche or a variation on it.
Acne Cures...Which Ones Can You Trust?
Autoresponders...Which Company Can You Trust?
And the list goes on an on.
Boring titles bore people. You can't get clicks if you can't get views.

So...do your article titles suck?
