MSN Results with Domain ALL CAPS?

Today I was doing a search on MSN, something I haven’t done in a long time. I was searching for the term “Spyware Protection”, and I was SHOCKED to see the organic result had the domain in ALL CAPS!

This is a link to the search:

MSN Results with Doamin in All Caps

I have never seen anything like this before. I did a search for spyware-protection.org on Google and Yahoo and the domain was all lowercase. The only other thing I can think is the site was registered with Live Webmaster Center with the domain in all caps. To test this hypothesis, I submitted Sweet Rock Media like so: http://www.SWEETrockMEDIA.com. I seriously doubt that it will have any effect, but its worth a try.

I think having the domain listed in all caps can result in a huge benefit for online marketers when it comes to organic traffic. This adds the opportunity to make your organic listing stand out, it won’t just be a matter of creative writing anymore, in MSN anyway.

Have you ever seen anything like this before?
