Blog Title Capitalization

Why You Should Do It And Best Practices

I’m sure you’ve asked yourself at least once or twice why some marketers use capitalization in their blog post titles, others don’t and why others choose to only use capitalization for certain blog post titles and… what the best practices are.

First things first.

There are no rules.

Proper grammar would dictate that you should only use capitalization for the first letter of the first word of a sentence, for names, and some other exceptions.

When blogging, you don’t per se use proper writing like you would when you’re writing an essay.

The reason that marketers use capitalization for their blog post titles is to stand out better and to make titles easier to scan when browsing on Social Media or in Search Engines.

For instance:

Which title stands out more?

You could also do a third variation where you only use capitalization for words you want to stand out. Meaning, not using it for short words:

Blog Title Capitalization Options

You basically have three options:

  1. Only capitalize the first word of the sentence
  2. Capitalize words that you want to have stand out
  3. Capitalize all words.

We usually choose option 3. We just like how it looks and find it is still easy to scan and it stands out.

Blog Title Capitalization And SEO

Be mindful that some Google displays Title Tags based on pixels but most tools give indications of the correct range based on number of characters. If you capitalize a lot of all words in your Title Tag and your tool shows that you are just within the number of character limit, you most likely are beyond the limit because capitalized words take more pixels than non-capitalized words.
