Do any of you have difficulty, naming recipes? There is the tug to make it an interesting title so others will look at the recipe. There is the equally compelling tug, to make it brief, not to bore anyone. Should we tell it all in the title or just give a tease to the reader? How many words make up a title with clarity?
I know, there are no pat answers, for the questions but what guidelines can we make, to bring our readers, the titles they are looking for.
Do you want to know the recipe comes from Pioneer Woman or Ina Garten in the title?
If you are using a food with many identities, do you want the butternut squash or Idaho potato in the title?
Do you even look at the titles? Is it the photos that grab your attention?
While, I am asking questions, how many photos, do you like in a post? Do you want tutorials? Does a bad photo turn you away from reading the post? Would you look at posts without photos?
If I can get some answers, I will be glad to write up your responses in an informational post.
