Do capital letters generate different search results?

    I am focusing on a little keyword research for future hubs. Do capital letters at the beginning of words make a difference?

    I am using google keyword tool, and also noticed brackets on some words.

    For example, are these two search terms the same?

    apple pies
    Apple Pies

    I am interested to know because maybe this would reflect different amounts of traffic depending on how you use words.

    I been wondering this for quite a while.

    Capital letter are part of using proper grammar. Not using them, makes your writing that of a child who doesn't know any better.

    Not exactly the impression you want to give readers, now is it? hmm

      No, I did not mean not using capital letters in the hub itself necessarily. Perhaps certain words in the title.

      I have seen some foreign people who write on hubpages, and do not capitalize the first word of a sentence

    When I see a title all in small letters to me it means it is not worth reading. It's lazy.

    Hey David, just take a look at how I laid out my titles on my hubs. That should give you an idea. Also, consistency is necessary. Make all your titles the same format, do not use different formats on different hubs. Write them all the same way, so as to keep the professionalism as an appearance,.
