Pretty nice – isn’t it? I’d like to think so. And let me explain why I think this tool is so great – and no, it’s not because my copyrighting skill in creating this particular headline got such a high score :)

Headline is perhaps the one, most important aspect of your article whether you write for [tag-tec]SEO[/tag-tec] or for people, although I do hope you write for both. They are not mutually exclusive. Even in title of this article there are keywords – see if you can spot them. If you are truly moving into Web 2.0 blogosphere – your title should be written for people first and for search engines if possible.

Since starting this blog I have discovered love from search engine and surprisingly found my site in number 3 position in Google results for “WordPress web 2.0 theme” keywords, when used without quotes (broad match) but most of my traffic still comes from social sites.

And this is where this tool comes in extremely handy from my point of view.

  1. Neat tool. The spiritual thing is kinda creepy, but I get where they are coming from.

    Would be funny though to have a computer program understand the average person’s spiritual side better than we clearly do ourselves as a society lol!

    I know that’s not the intent, but what I thought of when I saw the spiritual measurement.

    Thanks for comment Jack. I think it is more like an evaluation of simple predefined parameters that allows this form of scoring.

    As far as machine evaluation – machine has no reason to lie, unlike us :) Sometimes we lie to ourselves or simply missjudge … I find it usefull to the extent of providing a perspective I might have never thought of.

    Kinda like asking someone – “what do you think?”

  3. Thanks for such a great article and the link to this tool I’ve used it a couple of times for tweaking titles. It definitely helps as I can see on the popularity widget with the catchy titles making it to the top. Just a side note :The highest score I got was over 70% for a blog post. :)

    Nice one Alex!

    That’s one hell of a cool tool for a “FREEBIE”. I’ll certainly be test driving it over the next few months, and beyond.

    Keep the good work up ;¬)

    I happened to pass by this blog while searching for web 2.0 stuff.

    I tried that tool and it’s amazing! I got one which had 100% as EMV score. But it was only two words so I don’t think that counts as much.

      Beena,

      Anything counts :) Sometimes a two word headline can have more impact then a long and winded one … I have actually seen it in action.

  6. That is one heck of an amazing “Freebie” tool. My Blog headlines have only been getting 20-30% tops. I’m going to have a go at trying to improve my headlines and see if I can boost my blog traffic.
