It’s good to have some common words in your headline. They’re words that everyone understands. That came to be 26% for the headline of this post.
The score of uncommon words was 0.They are the opposite: they aren’t often used in everyday writing. It’s okay to have some common words for attraction but you should over use them as they can make your headline confusing.
The second last category is the power words which can cause action among your readers. Headline needs to have one of the powerful words in its headline.
Emotional word is the last category which creates emotional responses from the customers.
