How to Write A Good Blog Post Title

The Basics

Let’s start with the basics.

A good blogpost title shouldn’t exceed 62 characters. Why? Because Google cuts the title after 62 characters, meaning people won’t be able to read the whole title if it’s bigger that that.

Also, odd numbers tend to do better than even ones, so keep that in mind.
