3 Things I Hate about Enumerated Blog Titles

By -

Any of you who spend any time on the web see this kind of thing every day; that is, the click-bait enumerated headline……..


What I can’t stand about these things is:

  1. The assumption that in order for a person to be tempted to read an article, they have to be reassured that it will be broken down into bite-sized morsels;
  2. Their ubiquity; it seems that everyone on the web uses these; MarketWatch is a particularly egregious offender;
  3. That the technique apparently works.
