If your headline offers a numbered list, that’s even better. The best thing of all is a moderately clever play on words, which will attract people who think they are smart, and improve your demographics.
Toss in a photo of a nice dog or the Duchess of Cambridge, and it’s a hit.

Blog Guy, I really need your help with a relationship problem. I’m pretty sure my girlfriend is stepping out on me.
