Imagine you are browsing the Internet, looking for information or inspiration for your next blog post. You type in a query and see a list of results. Which one do you click on?
If you’re like most people, you probably click on the result that has the most appealing and relevant metatitle and description. It’s akin to walking through a bookstore in search of the perfect novel that will transport you to another world. You browse through the bookshelves, and your eye is drawn to the colorful cover and intriguing title.
On the Internet, meta titles and descriptions play a similar role. They act like storefronts for blog posts. They attract the attention of potential readers and encourage them to click on the link.
A meta title is a headline that appears on search engine results pages (SERPs). It’s your first chance to grab the attention of potential readers and encourage them to click through and go to your blog. On the other hand, the meta description provides a brief overview of your blog post, giving users a glimpse of what to expect inside.
A well-designed meta title and meta description can be critical to the success of your blog. According to a Backlinko study, a 1% increase in CTR can translate into a 2.5% increase in site traffic. That’s a significant increase in the visibility and readership of your content
According to a survey by HubSpot, 75% of users never scroll past the first page of search results.
Now, if your blog post is on the second page, the meta title and meta description are tickets to the first page of search results.
But what happens when your meta tags turn out to be insufficient? If they aren’t engaging or don’t match the searcher’s intent?
If this happens, you may lose the chance to attract and convince readers to click and go to your website. You may even lose the ability to show your meta title and description because Google may decide to rewrite them, leaving you with an unattractive snippet that won’t encourage clicks.
That’s why it’s so important to write a meta title and description optimized for CTR and click-through values.
CTR stands for click-through rate, which is the percentage of people who clicked on your result after seeing it in the search results. Click value is the quality of the meta title and description that makes it worth clicking.
There are some general tips and best practices to follow when writing a meta title and description, such as:
✅ Use your main keyword and related keywords in the meta title and description, but don’t overdo it or use them in an unnatural way
✅ Try to keep the meta title and description concise and clear. The optimal length is about 60 characters for the meta title and 160 characters for the meta description
✅ Write your meta title and description in a way that fits the content and purpose of your site, as well as the intent and expectations of your audience
✅ Write your meta title and description in a way that stands out from the competition and presents your unique value proposition
✅ Write your meta title and description in a way that encourages and persuades readers to click on the result, using emotional triggers, benefits and calls to action
While guidelines and best practices are important, they don’t guarantee that meta titles and descriptions will increase CTR and click-through value. To really stand out, you need to write them in an original and engaging way that reflects your brand voice and personality.
Many novice bloggers struggle with this problem because they don’t have the practical knowledge or time to create a catchy metatitle and description.
