    When people make threads with titles that do not give ANY info about what is in the post...

    I have been here a few weeks, and I notice it here more then any other forum...

    A good title should give readers a hint of what is on the page.

    A bad title: "Is it true?" -- not to focus on him, but these titles are everywhere...
    A good title: "How much time do you take to spin an article?"

    Using a good title will help you get better responses to your questions, and will help members navigate through the site a lot easier.

    The secret is to mouseover the link before clicking it. You can see the first few words and decide to click or not...most of the time I don't click after the mouseover.

    LOL. yesterday there was a thread title that says "SEO"

    and then inside it said.

    "SEO means Search Engine Optimization. and it knows all"

    That thread makes me laugh everytime I see it


    ON-TOPIC:
    I agree with helpful thread titles. Would add more efficiency to the community as people who know about the subject are more likely to go in the thread and contribute.
