I create daily mini-podcast (5 minutes) with sentences, vocabulary, and tips for ESL (English as a Second Language) students. I have about 8,000 subscribers to my list; and I feel that my "unique voice" in the market is to be personable and to create mini-podcasts that relate to my life and day-to-day activities while teaching them English. http://www.domineingles.com.br/
So this is my dilema: I prefer to create interesting titles to my posts like "What I learned with my dog today"; and "My students did it again!", etc., that are related to my "story" and which will draw my subscribers to listen to the mini-podcast. (I know those were probably poor examples of "interesting titles", but you get my idea. :-) )
However, my competitors are writing posts like "How to use the verb to be", and "How to say _____ in English", etc.; which are more google searchable.
If I post titles like that, it will increase my SEO, but I feel it will take away from my "unique voice".
So should I go with "how to say _______" and "how to use the verb ____" for SEO purposes, or keep the more story-like titles to keep things interesting for my listeners? Your opinion will be very much appreciated. Thank you!
