    Unhappy How much does upper and lower case in url influence seo?


    Hi, guys,
    I find lots of my blog url like this: mywebsite.com/Abc-cba-Bac-cab.html
    I can't change it now. I've check resources say the url path parts best with all lower case.
    My question is how much negtive impact my urls have?
    Thanks.

    There's no real problem with uppercase characters where SEO is concerned. A capital letter is a letter like any other :-)

    It's just that people linking to you need to get your URLs exactly right, uppercase and all.

    Maintaining a website with uppercase characters in the URLs is harder to do for the webmaster, which is why people advice against the use of capitals etc.
