Upworthy gets around 34 million views every second… or something like that. You know how they do it?
They write magnetic headlines and people can’t help but click on them. That is all they do.
Here are some of my blogging friends titles rewritten to appear more annoyingly Upworthy.
- This Little Boy was too Poor for an iPod but the Generosity Shown to Him by an Old Man will Make You Cry.
- You’ll Never Believe How a Day at the Beach is Really Like a Day at the Toilet!
- Find Out What This Genius Artist Does with an Ordinary Coke Bottle and Flowers from His Yard. You’ll Never Visit an Art Museum Again!
- A Generous Old Lady offers Her Home to a Homeless Man. Discover Why all Old Women Aren’t Created Equal.
To my blogging friends: May my titles for your blog posts crash your servers from too much traffic. 🙂
