Link hover not working - CSS

I'm trying to scale a box by hovering over it but doesn't seem to be working. Can I style the href to scale when hovering over?

Got the code I'm using below as well as a jsfiddle:

HTML:

<div class="window">
<div class="col">
<a href="google.com" class="box">
<span class="title-label">window title </span>
<span class="content"></span>
</a>
</div>
</div>


CSS:

.col {
max-width: 50%;
}

.title-label {
display: block;
padding: 20px;
margin-bottom: 0;
color: #fff;
font-weight: 700;
background: #0176ff;
-moz-border-radius: 4px 4px 0 0;
-webkit-border-radius: 4px;
border-radius: 4px 4px 0 0;
}

.content {
margin-top: -1px;
box-shadow: inset 0 0 0 1px #0176ff;
border-top: 0;
padding: 25px;
min-height: 235px;
display: block;
}

.window .col .box:hover {
-moz-transform: scale(1.1);
-ms-transform: scale(1.1);
-webkit-transform: scale(1.1);
transform: scale(1.1);
-moz-box-shadow: 0 0 49px rgba(0, 0, 0, .06);
-webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 49px rgba(0, 0, 0, .06);
box-shadow: 0 0 49px rgba(0, 0, 0, .06);
}

Answer

It doesn't work because it's an <a>, an inline element.

You need to add display:block to make it work.

Also I added transition: transform 250ms to add some "smoothness" to the animation.
