  2. Hello, Michelle!

    Oppss…. Some words are too “fearing” and I think I cannot use them ever for the certain reason as to where I come from, right? :)

    But, these words (except some for me) will really add up the ‘blast’ (sorry :) ..) actually, arouse the curiosity to check out the content.

    I work a lot on making the attention-grabbing headline for my blog posts. And these words will really add up what I want to add to attain the attention.

    So, great list you came up with! :)

    See me often! :)

  8. How well do these words work as far as SEO goes? I do know some of them do well for certain niches but it seems like most of them would only work well for mainstream news, fashion, and topics that are up for debate right now. Maybe I am over thinking it. Most of them wont even work well for what I write on but it is a good list to keep on hand.
