I do this all the time. Page titles are probably the most important factor
which  is  easy to choose carefully without massaging any  text.  Example:
"Review  of  Search Engines" (too broad and competitive for  small  sites)
versus  "Comparison  and  Analysis  of Search Engines". It's  a  bit  like
gambling  at  times  as its hard to predict the outcome. Some  pages  will
receive a huge number of referrals and some will get 0.

One needs to think what _reasonable_ (e.g. not "sdlaaskfbvsd" or "sandwich
greenland") SERP's the title will most likely correspond to and whether or
not the site can make it to page 1, given its status.

I  guess that articles must stand out from a larger pool if they ever want
to be accessed by searches. It's different from them days when people just
received/purchased the favourite daily and whetever title fit best did its
job. People take an overview on thousands of news sources in tandem.

Just my humble opinion...
