    So I have a jquery plugin called wTip,

    When I type in "wtip jquery" into google search, it automatically auto corrects the spelling to "qtip jquery" which is a popular tooltip plugin.

    Is this gonna screw me, should I just rename my plugin to something else?

    Anyone have experience with something like this?

    Thanks

    Probably better off renaming it if you're in the early stages. It also depends on how popular you honest anticipate it being. If it gets popular enough to no longer be considered an 'obscure' term by google, then they'll stop doing that.

    Edit: Just checked it out. Very nice plugin, yours is actually more responsive than qTip. I might actually use it myself sometime.

    If it was me I probably would. If it is a popular enough term that you did not even get the "did you mean" at the top you are going to have a fairly hard time turning that around.

    Okay, good thing I noticed that now, because I haven't linked it out too much yet, other than some hash tags, which I can just redirect.

    So many things to pay attention to!!

    Thanks.

    Yeah the auto correct is a bummer. I ran into the same problem on a new site I am building out.

    Google will continue correcting it until they think your wptip is good enough that, that is what people are really searching for.
