Capitalization in blog post titles

Question for all you bloggers in regard to blog post titles.

How do you go about capitalization of your titles? Do you have a specific way of doing it or do you follow old school methods (such as capitalizing first letter, then all lower case).

Personally I try to maintain on capitalizing most words of over 4-5 letters and don't capitalize small words.

I prefer to have a title of my blog in a proper case.

I think this what you are referring to as old school:

How to Code a Page

How to Create a Site Map

That is how I do mine.

This one looks the best in my opinion and this is what I use! Glad to see that there are still people that do this!

Old school print would be something like this:

How to code a page

How to create a site map

Where only the first letter of the first word would be capitalized.

That is not what I learned many many moons ago...

a, and, of, the, or, in
words like that were not capitalized unless at the beginning of the title.

Ok, so I looked at what Copyblogger does (he originally started the blog as a copywriting blog before he moved to marketing stuff).

e.g.
Titles That Tell a Whole Story

Why Some People Almost Always Write Great Post Titles

Do Keywords in Post Titles Really Matter?

A Warts-and-All Guide to Kickstarter: What Works and What Doesn’t (Plus Where We Royally Screwed Up)

The Best of Seth Godin on Copyblogger

You can search his blog for titles to see more examples.

Do you have any evidence to backup this claim?
