    Talking Site maps

    I was just reading a older thread about site maps & submitting to google.
    I noticed a few comments on using capital letters and problems related.

    I was a bit confused.

    Can anybody answer the following questions for me please?

    Is it OK to use capital letters in;

    URL
    Meta tags
    Page title

    And is there any other places i should NOT use capital letters?

    Thanks in advance to any one that helps

    Hi, I see you've been waiting for an answer (I've had the same problem with some of my posts on this forum). Hope this helps:

    I just did a little experiment: tried typing various URLs into my browser with some of the letter capitalized--and arrived at those sites just as quick as if I'd typed in lowercase letters only. Then I tried typing in some more URLs in all capital letters--same good result. I think all browsers convert whatever you type into all lowercase.

    Sometimes in an ad or elsewhere, you'll see a long, multi-word URL displayed in "camel case," for example: www.BillJacobsChevrolet.com. See how that's easier to read than if it were all lowercase? Making it easier to read makes it easier for the reader to remember it.

    As for meta tags and page titles, I've never heard of capital letters having any effect on them . . . and I've been doing quite a bit of studying in the SEO area this year. More important thing about page titles: search engines can see only the first 64 characters you type in for the title, so don't overdo it on any of your pages.
