Everyone talks about different strategies of SEO (search engine optimization) with tons of really good ideas to get traffic from Google.
I was analyzing my Google-referred traffic on Summation and I get a LOT of random hits. It turns out that many of these pages have words that I misspelled. You see, I’m a really terrible speller (I’m a math guy) and my blog is riddled with spelling and gramatacal miscakes.
But it turns out that I am not alone. Turns out tons of people in the world are also really bad spellers. And they tend to mis-spell terms they are searching on in Google.
Many people make a lot of money on this by buying misspelled domain names. I have a friend that has a misspelled variation of “facebook.com” that gets thousands of people visiting a day.
Other people by ads off the search terms of mis-spellers.
Google even tries to compensate us poor spellers by suggesting search terms that we really meant.
In fact, I am continually amazed at the stupidity of the english language.
Maybe the Internet will help us all sympathize with Dan Quayle.
