Its AdWords
Not Adwords

Its AdSense
Not Adsense

Its FrontPage
Not Frontpage

Do you pay much attention to this? I see many who don't. From a branding perspective, I'd be a mess if I had to deal with WebmasterWorld over Webmasterworld. I might have chosen Webmaster World instead. ;)

Geeze PageOne Results you struck a chord here! :)

It is a pain to deal with. But ya know, much as it distresses me when I see it happen with my own domain/business name, I have to admit to not being terribly careful when it comes to others.

I think I'll go out to the woodshed and try knocking some sense into myself with a piece of firewood.

The least of my concerns is whether or not i'm branding a companies logo correctly, unless they pay me do to so. I'm not going to risk getting carpal tunnel in my pinky trying to capitalize the middle of words.

Its adwords, adsense and frontpage as far as i'm concerned.

Got to go now, need to get a delicious thirst quenching Coca~Cola(TM) from the fridge.

A company I once webmastered had to withdraw and reprint a huge print brochure campaign because of a missed StuddlyCap on a product name. Studdlycappy companies are really particular about their Studdlycappiness.

No, no. IT is a field in its own right. IT's not going to be happy with your casual usage.

Thanks for the clarification, PageOneResults. :-D

Very little on the 'net annoys me any more after seeing so many teh's and ur's and other lazy expressions.

Has anyone seen what happens when you type, nay, even THINK of typing a W next to a M next to a W on this forum? Even with dashes? lol . . . "Here, let me tell you what you REALLY want to type." :-)

Yeah, and then the substitution macro for the three x

type three x and get #*$!

I once wanted to reply to some WebmasterWorld user whose name includes four x in a row. I could not figure out how to get the name down.

#*$!

I tend to use a capital letter at the beginning of a proper noun and write the rest in lower-case. The only time I use anything other is where the proper noun is two parts separated by an apostrophe.

It's Webmasterworld, Adsense, Frontpage, O'Brien, and Mac Dhomhnuill (MacDhomhnuill or Macdhomhnuill are plainly and historically incorrect - even Bin Laden knows that 'son of' is a word of its own).

This is a common annoyance when creating an ad for AdWords or Overture for MyCompany and the system flags it for a misspelling.

I know what you mean about Adwords. They victimise me because of my company name, 'BuyWidgetsHereBestPriceUK' - even though at 25 characters it fits the title box exactly! The worst is when I am marketing the product named 'GetWidgetsFromUsNotNE1ElseCosWeRock' (manufactured by 'TheVeryBestWidgetPricesClickHereNow').
