    I'm thinking about buying an EMD that is an alternative spelling of a very popular vacation spot. It's not a wrong spelling, just old fashioned and less often used. Nevertheless it has 4,000 exact match and a ton of long tail which are not being targeted. The only problem is, when I type it into Google, it renders to the more popular spelling, without even asking me: "did you mean?" Does this mean this wont work? I'd really like to build a fun vacation guide out of this but not sure if it will even be accepted by Google.

    G can understand synonym and G suggests that because it seems like there is no one targeting that old-fashioned phrase, you can do a quick test by using search modifier allintitle:keyword or allinurl:keyword.

    Just go with it and I think you will be successful soon

    This method worked years ago, but since Google started the latent semantic thing it's gone kaput.
