Do you capitalize more than one word in your title?
Do you find that it increases/decreases traffic if you capitalize more than one word in your title?
I like to capitalize every word. I think that it gives the title a little more punch.
You capitalize the first and last words of the title and all nouns, pronouns, verbs, adverbs and adjectives.
-You do not capitalize articles (the, a, an) unless the article is the first or last word of the title.
-You do not capitalize prepositions* of four letters or fewer unless the preposition is the first or last word of the title.
-You do not capitalize conjunctions* of four letters or fewer unless the conjunction is the first or last word of the title.
-You do not capitalize the particle "to" used with an infinitive unless the "to" is the first or last word of the title.
Prepositions convey the following relationships: agency (by); comparison (like, as . . . as); direction (to, toward, through); place (at, by, on); possession (of); purpose (for); source (from, out of); and time (at, before, on).
A conjunction joins two parts of a sentence. Coordinating Conjunctions include: and, but, or, nor, for, yet, so. Subordinating Conjunctions: although, because, since, unless
Hope this helps!
I'm not sure anything can be added to Christine Miranda's excellent answer other than to say that I never knew before now that the last word is always capitalized or that the length of the preposition or conjunction made a difference - good to know!
Following these guidelines will make for a much more polished and professional title than simply capitalizing every word would. No offense intended.
