    what about this? suppose you composed a catchier post title?
    I am not saying your content is not solid., however what if you added something that makes people desire
    more? I mean Free Online Lectures from Top Colleges and Universities | Al Jamiat Magazine is kinda boring.
    You should glance at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create article headlines to get viewers interested.
    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get readers
    excited about what you’ve written. In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little
    bit more interesting.
