    Ive been seeing this lately people making a catchy thread title and having the actual thread have nothing to do with the title, just to get views I assume. So just please make your title related to your thread all it does is give us more work

    Yep . . . It's a form of "Linkbaiting". Works effectively on your headlines in the Classified Ad sites to get your ad noticed, but it is not cool to use in forums.

    I concur.

    It's funny to note how so much of SEO is actually about organizing your content so that search engines (and therefor users) can find and navigate your content easily, and yet how little emphasis is put on subject titles on SEO forums.
