I have noticed that google is getting smarter everyday. It keeps on changing the algorithms every now and then that is why some bloggers, webmasters, search engine optimizers and search engine marketers are having a hard time with their promotion of selected keywords. Though Google is not the only search engine, its monstrosity actually dominate the other two major search engines today. One thing that greatly affect online businesses or blogs to earn more is the dependence to the search engine results page. Ranking within the first pages of the SERPS are vital to search engine marketing and/or optimization.
I would really love an expert opinion on this. Recently, I saw a site wherein the author, Macuha, has this project of mispelled words. The title was The Utube, Yotube, Yutube and Youtude Videos project, wherein he tried to gain traffic by purposley manipulating the spelling of the word YOUTUBE. I was curious and wondered how much traffic he gains by having a such post plus intentionally changing the spelling of previous YOUTUBE words within his blog. I searched the U.S. data center for Utube, Yotube, Yutube and Youtude Videos and found sixty million results for the keywords. What’s my point? Google is not only suggesting the correct spelling, but actually redirecting the results with the correct spelling and to proper websites related to the keywords or keyphrases. If this is not new to you, it is quite new to me. I remember back then wherein google ONLY suggests the correct spelling by stating “did you mean (correct spelling of keyword)…?” but now, It (google) shows results of websites with the correct spelling of the word or words searched.
U.S.A is not the only country in the world
I am aware of that and tried other data centers around the globe. I tried searching singapore and UK with the keywords and still, it showed three-digit-million results. Here is an actualy screenshot of the result.
Is there really traffic with this kind of technique or project. Having the keywords really put you high on the serps thus gaining traffic? I hope that people in seo, especially the gurus out there fill me in with information regarding this matter. But for the meantime, this post serves as Hinlalato jumps to the mispelled-words-bandwagon.
