    Search Engine Nightmares: Grammatical Errors and Misspelled Keywords - Do Misspellings Matter?


    (Page 2 of 4 )


    Wait just one minute! Don’t many major search engines have a “failsafe” in place just for that very reason? Haven’t these traffic-drivers grown so user-friendly nowadays that they actually pick up on your spelling error and correct it for you, stopping you before you can make a mistake or miss your page?

    It’s true that some sites (such as Google, pictured) will correct you if it thinks you’re wrong, if a word in your search string could be more commonly spelled in a different way. Words which are suspected to be misspelled are corrected and offered up in a link through this correction feature. Click the link just once, and you’ll enter the pages featuring the search engine results you were always meant to have.

    But…

    Even when words are misspelled in the eyes of the search engines, results are still displayed. Who’s to say there isn’t a company, person or place that’s spelled similarly to another word? This, too, could activate Google’s spellchecker -- so the search engines still display results even on what could be a genuine accidental misspelling.

    While many users may click the top link and continue to the right search with the word spelled correctly, others may not. They may choose to forge ahead, choosing the sites featuring the misspelled word or words.

    When all of your words are spelled correctly, those users who continue on a misspelling path certainly aren’t going to find you. But big deal, right? After all…how many of them could there be?
