A not-so-secret recipe for display and SEO headlines

Click here to see our latest headline post.

If your CMS requires both a display headline and a window title/SEO headline — as NPR’s does — consider this recipe card as a guide. Your best practices may be different (and by the time we hit “Publish” on this, Google will have changed its algorithm), but these are ours. Adjust to taste.

This PDF has four cards each. For best results, print it two-sided and in color.
