    Hi,

    Im wondering if it matters whether you use capital letters in your backlinks and link titles ect.

    eg. if I have all my backlink text as 'Piano Tuition' will the site appear when someone searchs for 'piano tuition'?

    This could be quite important as when putting place names in my site I want them to be displayed correctly i.e. with capital letters but when Im searching for something I never put capital letters in so would not find my pages if it makes a difference.

    Google ignores case in searches. It is assumed that most people are too lazy to search in the proper case.

    However, Google is probably intelligent enough to know what's an acronym and what isn't. So if you put PLANO TUITION in your back links, Google would probably recognize that as forum or directory spam.

    thanks for that.

    I only thought about it because I ran a programme that checks the site out for SEO and it wasnt recognising my keywords when I had capitalised them.

    it's probably a bug in the program you're using.
