Capitalization seems to be playing a role for an article in which I hold top spot and my competitor is drawing more traffic from 2nd with the exact same title BUT IN ALL CAPITALS.
I have to admit, if the keyword searched for returns an exact match that has every letter capitalized the bold effect looks good, the words appear bigger and in the case of my one example they draw more traffic (according to a less than always accurate reporting service, which I won't name).

If this question is based on an analysis from non accurate reporting, does that report show your traffic higher or lower? What about that competition page being hit by other keywords where you don't have the first spot in the serps?

I'd be very interested in hearing back about the results to that test, if it was ever done. We're in a similar situation on 2 major keywords. Our competitor has stronger backlinks and every few weeks swaps with us for no 1, but we don't know their traffic obviously. Maybe an experiment with a small ads listing? Any feedback on this one?
