Fantasy Clickbait

I have been playing around with a clickbait title generator lately, and I wanted to share some of the funniest results with you.

I even wrote a joke-article based on one of them, and I welcome anyone to try to write something for one of the other headlines:

Or if you can come up with other funny fantasy clickbait titles, I’d love to read them!

5 Ways Marketers are Making You Addicted to Dragons

We all know that marketing firms have been in the pocket of Big Dragon for decades.

But what you may not know, is how they utilize their skills in service of them.

But fear not, I am here to fill you in!

5. Fire

As anyone who works in media will tell you: Fire catches the eye!

4. Bright Colors

Dragons come in many different colors, from the classic red, to blue, to golden.

Their fabulous!

3. Variety

But it is not only color that differs from dragon to dragon, but also abilities, form, and allegiance.

We are all used to the evil two-winged red fire-dragon, but some may prefer the good four-winged blue ice-dragon, or the morally ambivalent no-winged white time-dragon.

2. Search Engine Optimization

The dragon marketing department have done a lot of work to get dragon SEO up to snuff.

As a result, searching for “dragons” on any major search engine will result in you finding impressive facts and pictures of dragons.

1. Force

Don’t like dragons?

Then dragons don’t like you.

And you don’t want that!
