Make your article title interesting while avoiding clickbait titles
Your article title is what people see at a first glance. So if you want people to click on your article and read your post instead of your competitors’ posts, you need to be creative when it comes to choosing a title for your article.
If your article title is compelling and interesting the likelihood for your post to getting click and views is high.

Since you are rewarded basis on clicks, Opera News hub doesn’t allow authors to use power words on their article title.
