Headline Analyzer Tool

Your headline is similar to a lightbulb attracting a moth. Write a bright and compelling headline, and you can rest assured you’ll have more flying insects than you can count. A great headline grabs a reader’s attention and compels them to read more. While there’s no exact science to writing a compelling headline, there are tips, tricks and tools you can use to ensure you’re reeling in readers. The Headline Analyzer Tool is great to use if you’re still figuring out what works for you and your audience. The tool analyses whether you’ve used power words. These are words that catch a reader’s attention and tempt them to click on your headline. “Now,” Hurry,” “Special,” and “Premium” are just a few words that are considered power words. Additionally, this tool analyses readability (how easy your headline is to read) and whether your title appeals to the emotions of your reader. Remember, emotions sell!
