the title did what it needed to do... 7.6k views in 2 days. Not my most intelligent post. but it worked. :) https://old.reddit.com/r/conspiracy/comments/933p3c/this_is_mind_control_get_it_yet/

I posted it yesterday and got another 6.8k views with what I consider a better title: https://www.reddit.com/r/conspiracy/comments/93ihuc/every_local_tv_newscaster_reads_from_the_exact/

Different titles appeal to different groups, so it's probably best to have both types of titles in the long run.

i was going for shock effect. lots of people give into clickbait.. idc why they watch.. so long as they watch it. posts of mine with pdfs... clever titles get overlooked... a minuite and a half montage of news anchors parroting... thousands of views within an hour. sigh.

It worked, but mine worked too :) Mine was just direct, there's no need to be clever imo. People really want straightforward information because it's so hard to find these days.
