  1. Hi Mr. Piyush

    keywords are the important factors for the site , right ?

    but i 'm in confusing that keywords should be in which case(upper/lower or capitalize) ?, i ask you this question because , my blog is on blogger blog when i have "" i analyze it with alexa it shows keywords, but now i have custom domain and it almost 2 months i check my site in alexa still it shows nothing keywords, while my alexa rank increasing .

    my question is keywords are in upper,lower or capitalize ?

    1. Hello John,

      Google is not case sensitive. So you can use keywords in anyway :) If you wanted to see the practical demo then you can google one query in upper case and then shoot the same query in lower case.

      The result will come similar for both the queries.

      Hope this helps !

    1. Hello Rahul,
      Hope you are doing fine. Rahul google and alexa are totally different things and they are not related + can you please tell me your domain name so I can briefly analyze your problem.

      I hope you have created and submitted custom domain specific sitemap to google webmaster tools. If not then please do it and google might take some time to give you desired results.

      You can take help of these two below mentioned post.



      Hope this helps.
