Optimizing for typos

Arjun asked 1 year ago
Make sure you’re paying attention to your analytics and taking a look at the keywords people are using to find your sites! I just found out that many people don’t know how to spell one of my top 10 entrance keywords, and it’s sending a lot of traffic

That use to work but google now automatically corrects the spelling

eg: automatically – Google Search

Some people have that automatic suggestion tool shut off.

Knowing what keywords people used to get to your site is valuable – spelled correctly or not.

Whatever works!

You’re right, didn’t even think about that. Just saw some typos in my analytics that I hadn’t seen before and had a “wtf” type of moment.

I used to purposely add typos to my content but that doesn’t work anymore. I remember back in the day I added “casuno” as a keyword because I kept making the mistake and figured others did too. I remember getting some good traffic from it too.

keyword data is after the fact and not before.
I see analysing keyword data to perhaps move a page up in rank but if they found your site using a particular keyword or keyword phrase then it must be working or they would’t have found your site in the first place.

The key (no pun intended) is to incorporate into your content new keywords/phrases that you have not received any traffic from. You can either think these up or use one of the tools.
