This study was conducted in a single firm in a single industry (healthcare), so the usual caveats apply. You can find the whole article in Administrative Science Quarterly.

    Department 12 is a little vanilla. You ought to peek at Yahoo’s
    home page and watch how they write post titles to get people to
    click. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get people interested about
    what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it might bring your blog a little bit
    more interesting.
