Product Review:  CoSchedule Headline Analyzer
What is CoSchedule Headline Analyzer?
  • Simply put, it’s a free tool that will analyze, score and grade your headlines for maximum impact.
  • It will teach you how to create a great headline based on proven scientific research.
  • The Headline Analyzer looks for a balance of types of words in 4 categories: common words, uncommon words, emotional words and power words.
  • It also provides you with examples of those trigger words, as well as a critique on your headline length.
  • For example, optimal headlines should be roughly 55 characters long and 6 words long.
  • Another feature is that it looks at words that standout when your readers glances at the headline.
