Do you take advantage of deliberately misspelled keywords on your blog? Here's why you probably should!
Lets talk about how misspelled keywords can be profitable for you as a blogger, business site or freelancer.
With most Search Engines adopting auto suggestion, less and less people are accidently misspelling the things they are searching for. But many people don't use Google auto suggest or many more use a search engine or browser where auto suggest isn't enabled and still many people accidently misspell what they are searching for even with auto suggest enabled. For example, some people don't know how to spell aubergine or make an accidental misspell..
So there's many people who are still accidently search for things using misspelled words. Are you thinking about those people as a blogger, business site or freelancer?
On eBay, many people delibrately mispell their auctions for those people that type the misspelling version instead.
You might not think this is a lot, but most people can't and don't spell properly and would rather use txt spk too.
You see what I did there? The correct spelling is deliberately misspell and you didn't even notice it did you!
It's okay, it doesn't make you a bad person!
But if you're trying to target one or several keywords, have you considered the misspellings of those same keywords?
Think about the top 5 keywords you are trying to target for your blog or site. Then think about ways in which those same keywords could be misspelled.
Remember that it's easier to rank for keywords if they actually exist on your page. It's the same for misspelled keywords too!
So the next time you write a blog post on something, research what some commonly misspelled keywords are for what it is you're writing about. And then try throw some of them in your page somewhere. You might just be surprised at the organic traffic it provides in the long run!
There are many ways to find commonly misspelled keywords. But you need to find the ones that are right for your niche!
