Crafting compelling headlines is one of the most important skills a blogger can develop. Your headline is the first thing potential readers see, and it plays a crucial role in whether they decide to click through and read your post.

Duplicating features with your own touch is fine, but outright copying features and benefits isn't a very good thing to do. In this article, I'll show you how to do a Competitive Blog Marketing Analysis on your competition.
