Nice headline tool - even if just to make you stop and think harder.

The free blog post headline analyzer (built on millions of headlines worth of data) will score your overall headline quality and rate its likelyhood to result in social shares, increased traffic, and SEO value.

    Thanks for posting this Janet! This headline analyzer is the result of several months worth of work studying what makes up a great headline. If you remember, we teamed up with Noah Kagan a few months back: https://growthhackers.com/we-analyzed-nearly-1-million-headlines-heres-what-we-learned/

    We have specifically built it to help bloggers and marketers write headlines that are more likely to be shared on social media and rock on SEO.

    Anyhow, I can't wait to hear everyones feedback and ideas!

      Love it - This is a great idea Garrett!

      I submitted a pretty generic post title and it was spot on in suggesting the post was generic. Yet, the feedback: "Try using a sentence structure that will get your headline more shares." was a bit light. A link to an article on structuring the headline for shares or a key insight you gathered in the study shared on the @noahkagan blog would be helpful here. That said, I love the idea and loved everything else. Great work.

      Very cool @garrettmoon (thanks for sharing @lethargarian ). What's the top rated headline you've seen on the analyzer tool?

        Great question! So far "10 excrutiating things that will make you scream about love" got an 88 :)

      Pretty interesting. I ran a couple of my headlines through it and a pattern emerged (mostly sentiment and word balance). Will try to experiment with overcompensating that pattern and see how that goes :)

      Might be interesting to be able to get a "bulk analysis", e.g. insert 50 headlines (or simply a blog url and let the tool automatically scrape all headlines), have them analyzed and then see overall trends there.

    Thanks for sharing @lethargarian, It seems super useful. As headlines are tough to crack. It'll be interesting to test out email subject lines as well - Just tried - "BOOM! This is how you get traffic… and convert it" that's the subject line for the first email in Neil Patel's quick sprout campaign. Noah Kagan wrote it and It has a 102% open rate. Scored 74. Great tool - @garrettmoon
