    I read an article yesterday about this, and wanted to get everyones take on it. The theory is that all caps in your titles make it stand out on what every page the results happen to fall on. Personally, I tend to agree that the eye will skip over the usual and zero in on the unusual, and even if it just gives you a hair thin advantage, it is a cheap and easy advantage to obtain.

    I also saw something similar on another site about putting non-alphanumeric characters in your site title to get it noticed....same principal, just moved up the food chain I suppose.

    So, any thoughts on all this?

    On safelists it is done all the time. I have seen some real crazy
    headlines in safelists.

    Never thought about it to much on forums. I 'll try it on some
    of the other forums I post on to see what the response is.

    I suppose to do it without everything in caps but I guess it should be given a try as there is nothing to loose in there.

    Anything unusual in the title will certainly draw more attention, but I think the topic also has to interest the viewer in order to entice a click through.

    I personally prefer titles with unusual content rather than unusual font...

    WEHN YOU'RE PNOEDRNIG WAHT THE FCUK IS TIHS


    Like the above phrase it makes you become curious
    and pause for a minute... and that's the purpose of it,
    TO MAKE YOU GO INTO A TRACE and concentrate on
    the head line.


    You see, your mind continuously process information
    on a back ground (kinda like on a system tray).
    Something has to interrupt it so that you can become
    aware of other things.


    For example...have you seen a product on clickbank
    called peal away? That thing makes you curious, right...
    it interrupt your experience.


    Or Haven't you visited the mall to buy some tennis
    shoes only to find that you also need a pair of socks?


    So, the whole point is to interrupt your world and tell
    you LOOK this is what you need to do.


    Ok let's go back to the main point...


    I've used this thing on several of my title tags' sites,
    to make it stand out. I first came out with this trick
    (3 years ago) when I learn that google love Craiglists
    pages, they are indexed fast before the links are disable.


    So the idea was to make sure during that time (when
    links are working) I get as many clicks as possible so I
    put some weird characters to catch the eye of a visitor.


    You will find the same technique used on clickbank.


    Here are some of the characters you can use...(from bluehat)

    ^ ¢ £ ¤ ¥ § ¬ ° ± º ø þ

    Also you can ===> ~~~ ^^^^ and the list goes on.

    In my experience I've seen that google love them
    but MSN are kind of mean on these characters. Just
    think outside the box and test.

    you can edit your post title by a script used to convert any text as if it was written by 12 yr old aoler
