    Hi there.

    I have three domains, which I´m using to rank a quite highly trafficated site. One domain is the actual domain, and the two other domains are common mis-spellings. What´s the better choice?

    a) Make the two typo domains redirect to the main domain.
    b) No redirects, but a simple html page. Usage of the domain name in title/h1, and make a link to main domain.

    Thanks in advance for anything clever.

    Redirect the typos to the main domain, just in case anyone types it in.

    Hi,

    I would go with first option redirect your typos domain into the main domain.

    Thanks. That´s what I´m doing this at the moment. But I want the typo- phrases to rank as well. It´s as common to type in the typo- phrase as the actual phrase, so it´s not actually a typo- typo, if you get what I mean.

    Did you even research the typo keywords to see if they get any searches, if any? Do that first. ;)

    The keywords do get a lot of searches.

    Well, then I guess the other option would make more sense. Put up the sites with an h1 for the typo keyword and then put a text below saying "Looking for 'non-typo-keyword'?" and then below put a big, fat, underlined, blue link underneath saying CLICK HERE and link it to your main domain.

    Thanks. Just switched alternative b. Also having this added to GA, and will add to GWT as well, to get a better overview. One of the typo domains allready have a PR of 2. Will be interesting to see if the tiny change affects anything.
