Header Word Case Google Seo

Google's John Mueller said on Twitter that he doesn't think that Google does "anything special with all-caps headings." So if you want to shout your headlines in UPPERCASE, go for it.

Adam Riemer asked "will a site that uses all caps because of branding for H tags & product titles be considered different than one that uses proper case structure in their text?"

John Mueller answered "I don't think we'd do anything special with all-caps headings, but it feels like the kind of thing you'd want to do in CSS instead of in the content, since it's more about styling."

Here are those tweets:

Of course, your HTML can show the text in whatever case you want and style it in all caps in CSS, if you wanted. It does not matter for SEO reasons.
