Exclamation Does Captilization Matter?

Can either of you tell me while posting keywords based content, do you prefer to use capitalization of keywords in a sentence or just hyper-linking will work.

I would like to say, Yes sometimes it matter. Because if you write mobile development instead of Mobile Development then it may not attract visitors but if you write Mobile Development then it seems a specific keyword and spider find it easily.

It makes no differences to the spiders and search engines. The spiders retrieve ALL the text on the page, regardless of whether it's capitalized or not. The search engines index ALL the text on the page, regardless of whether it's capitalized or not.

The only ones who care about whether it's capitalized are going to be you and your human visitors. If the words are properly capitalized, then by all means capitalize them. If they are not normally capitalized, then don't capitalize them just to try to make them stand out. That Just Makes You Look A Little Silly. (See? )

Ohh hard.

for keywords, it looks more clean and not spammy if you put your keywords without capitalization.

safe and crawl-able.

Rightly said by torka,

-From SEO perspective, capitalization does not matter, search engines reads both in the same way (try doing it in google and see the results, they will be the same)

-But, capitalization can be used to increase CTR (click through ratio)

Hope this helps

But yeah it really doesn't matter..

Just make the most appropriate capitalization for your website so that it will not look like a junk or whatever. (Friendly Advice)

I always try and stick to using proper grammar, while preparing my title tags etc I think of the human visitor and not the engine, if you focus on the client and their search you are also thinking of the engine

What will attract your client?

@jackmartin: As per search engine point of view this is not matter of worry but as per user point of view capitalization should attract user

Capitalisation should be used properly, not in a spammy fashion in some inane belief that the search engines like it.

Besides, Google is getting smarter all the time....or rather, someone is programming it to see things more and more like a human. So it's always best to play by the rules for the long term benefits.
