Thread: Title Case

  1. #1

    Title Case

    It is my (untested) belief that page titles in title case have higher CTR's in the SERPS than page titles in all lower case or all upper case.

    On many occasions, I have stumbled clumsily through explanations of title case.

    It appears that I don't need to do that ever again.

    Some nice person has made a simple web script to convert titles to title case.

    Check it out: Title Case.

    It makes sense. People are used to skimming and reading the titles.

    What do you think about camel case?

    I suspect that you are correct. Title case looks much more professional and is easier to read than all upper case or all lower case.

    I like the name Camel Case. I have never heard it called that.

    What I feel,

    Title Case - Best, easy-to-read, attractive, inviting (clicks)
    lowercase - little unprofessional and doesn't seem to have a good CTR
    UPPERCASE- Very untidy, distracting and blah blah

    CamelCase... Looks bad for search engines. Suppose it is - CheapCarInsurance - They assume it as single word and it is not very useful for indexing if used in titles. And for CTR, it looks tough-to-read for traffic so I assume a low CTR.

    Even lower case, title case, uppercase doesn't matter to search engines. As long as they show up the key"word", search engines will index. The case matters to the traffic and CTR.

    Well, thankfully my OCD fills me with an overwhelming compulsion to make all titles in Title Case by default!
