The primary subject is still "Optimal K-Means Clustering Algorithm" which before I clicked and read a bit of your article because of this post, I had zero idea what on Earth that even was. If I was busy and skimming for articles to read later from the front page I would probably pass to be honest. I think if you somehow hint in the title it relates to AI you'd get way more interest.
Edit: Of course I don't really do AI stuff, so maybe that's a common algorithm? This is all just my perspective as an AI noob
I didn't notice it mentioned but what's the Big-Oh performance of the sub-optimal k-means clustering algorithm? O(k)?

The complexity of the sub-optimal (!) k-means algorithm is typically very high (e.g. it's NP-hard).
That's actually why I've used the number of algorithm optimizations such as k-means++ initialization algorithm, thoroughly discussed in this article, as well as the ability of the initialization process to produce the number of initial clusters prior to performing the actual clustering, and that really helps to reduce the computational complexity of the k-means algorithm.
Why not a simple title, like "Classifying Data Using Artificial Intelligence"? And maybe the blurb can be something like, "A simple introduction to using K-Means Clustering for data analysis," or something like that. Then make the first paragraph about types of data and use cases, to draw the reader in to how to do it with K-Means Clustering. No need to scare your users by using big words in the title. The current title tells me it is going to be technical and non-user friendly except for possibly those who are already knowledgeable in the field.
You talk about what and how; but you don't say "why" this subject should be of interest. You need a "hook" to grab the readers' attention … early. Think of something in real life the audience can relate to and how your article / topic relates.
