Hi,

I want your opinions on capitalisation of keywords that does captalisation of keywords have any affect on rankings in search result pages fom google or not?

Today, I went through an article at Webpronews where it has mentioned that if we search on google with a keyword having first letter in capital and then having it without capitalisation in both cases google provides different results bu when checked it on google, Google gives same results for both....What do you think it really affect or not?

Google searches are not case sensitive. Before the days of Google, it made a difference with other search engines.

I've been seeing these results, some of the time, over the past two months. For instance, right now if I do a Google search for "red hat day" and "Red Hat Day" without the quotes, the fifth result down will be different in this search. On the non cap search I see a result for redhat.com and for the capitalized search I see a result for linux.org.

You know Coolsko for a guy that promotes an SEO site in his sig, you sure ask a lot of questions that tend to make one think you have no idea what you are doing.
