    Interesting tool Jeff. I’m curious to see how effective it is long term. Could be a killer product.

    Not completely convinced although if you’ve hit the wall or writer’s block then it could certainly help to generate ideas and/or the base of a headline that could then be worked upon.

    This is very interesting, but I would never want a robot to come up with a headline for me. I think it will destroy my creativity. I dont think we should rely on computers robots to do everything for us. We lose ourselves and our potential in a way, by letting robots do the creative work for us. I think society is alreadyl acking creativity. This was an interesting post though. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks for the comment and insights Lawrence. What I love about the social web is the innovation I see every day. For me the web enhances my creativity not diminishes it!

    I played with the Portent headline title maker a few months back. It came up with some clever ideas but missed the mark most of the time.

    I scan my headlines using http://www.aminstitute.com/headline/ tool nowadasys. This free tool will analyze your headline to determine the Emotional Marketing Value (EMV) score.

    There are already companies using robots to write articles. Check out this company: http://www.narrativescience.com/

    Hi, Jeff! This is indeed an interesting article to read. :)

    Headlines have been the most essential part of a blog post. Great writers think a lot for more than a day just to create an effective, killer headline that will magnet many readers.

    Headline generators, though called as robots, are really helpful to instantly create compelling headlines that make your blog posts stand out the most. This kind of tool will be very useful and handy, especially for bloggers who are often having a hard time composing effective headlines.

    Thanks for the shared knowledge! :)

    Its a great start, but try punching in “A blog that writes itself” and you can see they could improve the creative suggestions. It’s a very interesting idea, I’m also beta-testing IBM’s Watson to create recipes at the moment.

    The tool is amazingly good. I tried this for some of the terms; and I think that this is good to generate and make us aware of the most popular ideas. And seems that it works on post popularity indexes.
    Thanks for sharing

    Hi Jeff,
    wow! I think this is an interesting revelation, headlines are the first call of commitment from the reader.
    One thing I deduce from your end whiles you tried your experiment with the tool was this, the ‘hows’ and ‘whys’ were generated the most.
    This means crafting headlines is all about asking questions and providing solutions in the of contents.
    I do hope you agree with me. Do have a great day!

    Such an interesting topic you wrote, Jeff. This is a cool tool, indeed. Very useful when you are running out of idea on what to write on your blog. AMAZING! The thought “content idea generator” is really brilliant. Cheers to whoever invented this.

    hahaha! That was kinda fun! Thx for that.

    Although I see a few comments about ‘not letting robots write their headlines for them’, I feel like the point of this for me is to simply use this tool to spark the already existing creativity within me.

    I can see myself using these robotic suggestions as a jumping off point… GERONIMOOOOOOOO!! I few of the titles got me thinking in different directions – headline twists that took me to surprising new ideas I might not have come up with myself. I do love a twist with a surprise ending. ;)
