    They will be targeting misspellings, that's for sure. Same things happens in the paid results.

    Thats a killer misspell strategy.

    Edit: They are probably sharp enough to do this for as many brands as possible but unfortunately "Vacuum" is a word that is notoriously misspelt.

    They've got vacuum and vaccum in the title tag to appeal to both the correct and incorrect spelled searches. As mentioned vacuum is a word commonly spelt wrong. In fact I have to keep double checking :).
