Adam Sherk has used Google to search through millions of Press Releases, to find the most overused cliches and buzzwords. He identifies almost 100 terms, and I have to admit, I’ve used many of these. I should probably spend more time innovating my real-time sticky content.

Overused Terms

1. leader (161,000)

2. leading (44,900)

3. best (43,000)

4. top (32,500)

5. unique (30,400)
