What should the title of the text be in order to attract attention?

Above all, the title must be clear, concise and precise. He should talk about what follows in the rest of the text. Also, the title must be relevant. In addition to all this, the title must be interesting to attract attention. The title of the text must not be boring.

What you shouldn't do when you come up with a text title is try to "sell" something to your reader right away, but you should entice them to keep reading the rest of the text. 


The question is the best answer

Using questions in the title is the most effective way to attract attention. This is also something that search engines love, especially when the rest of your text contains the answer to that question. If it is well written, the question should attract, intrigue or even provoke readers to want to read more. 

If you search the internet, you will notice that some texts on this topic suggest that headlines should not contain more than seven words. However, this is not always true. It is important that they are simple, concrete and interesting, as we have already said, and the number of words that the title contains is less important.
