Tim Ferriss wrote a pretty impressive post about writing headlines that get retweeted (maybe not as relevant with your keyword optimization), he tried the headline 'The Rebirth of Seth Godin and Death of Traditional Publishing: How Authors Really Make Money' and 'How Authors Really Make Money: The Rebirth of Seth Godin and Death of Traditional Publishing'.

So he changed his main keyword to the front of the headline and it actually turned out to be more effective. A pretty good post to read according to me! http://www.fourhourworkweek.com/blog/2010/08/30/popular-retweets/

Someone on the first page asked about using punctuation in the title (!!).

The best practice is to limit punctuation in titles as much as possible. A title doesn't need a period (.) at the end or an exclamation mark (!).

The only punctuation I use is the dash (-), question mark (?), and sometimes an apostrophe ('). 

The times I've had trouble w/articles on IB they've had question marks in the title.  It's something to do with converting special characters in HTML, I think.

Punctuation - never use a period at the end of a title.  

Another example of good punctuation is using the : symbol

Giving a title to an article is a small action but very important one as a good title can fetch a good traffic to the article.
