Headline Ideas Generator

Hi,

I have a new site that generates Headline Ideas.

I am not a copywriter so would really appreciate it if you could give me some hints as to how to improve it:

See it here: Headline Ideas

cheers
Tony

    Didn't find the tool that great. It's just OK.
    Variety is really missing in this tool.

    when I typed query "ipad" I got some irrelevant headings like "5 iPad mistakes you might be making" which doesn't make much of a sense.

    Its a useful tool. Try to improvise it a bit.

    Yeah, some don't make that much sense however,

    I really liked it.

    Good work and thanks for sharing.

      thanks for the feedback JacksonRiddle - I'll add more variety and fix the next/previous button - I've got a much cooler slideshow idea :-)

      This is a cool video (though a bit noisy)....I'll think about how I can use it to improve the software....

    hey here tony

    it's a great start, thanks for sharing the link.. the problem that was obvious to me is that you need to add some logic to determine if the user input is a:

    - singular thing (ipad)
    - plural (cookies)
    - activity (marketing)

    add some logic to effectively determine those and then modify your canned ideas based on that.

    peace

    I thought it was pretty fun to play with - but agree that there needs to be a bit more variety. I received the same results with two topics, just with the topic swapped out. Which is fine, though I would expect to see more in future uses.

    It's good, though - for now - to help in busting up writer's block or to spark some ideas for people who may be struggling to come up with an appropriate title.

      It's a good little tool, more synonyms and ideas would make it much more useful.

      You could perhaps give the option to enter a bit more info and create story based headlines.

      One technical thing, after you click on 'Next', the 'Next' button is moved over to the right and the 'Previous' button appears where the 'Next' was. It would be good for the 'Next' button to stay in one place.

      Great start, just needs more varied content.

        I agree about the thing with the next tool. Should be fixed.
