Is it worth to use an EMD mispelling for an "important" niche?

    Hi,

    I have found a free .net domain with the name of an important niche.

    The name is mispelled but it has 4400 exact monthly searches, medium competition and ? 0.51 CPC

    for example, if the niche was "weight loss" I would have found weigtloss.net

    Do you think it is worth to invest in this domain?
    Also, what keywords should I rank for? The mispelling or other related keywords?
    Should I use the mispelling inside the website or just keep it for the EMD?

    well...i don't think it's worth. If the domain it's cheap, you can give it a try. But don't invest much time or money in such projects

    I tried searching the misspelled word and google autocorrects the search.
    It looks like it's useless. :(

    No, I wouldn't bother. I bought one thinking the same, but after putting more thought into it, I'm not even going to bother with it

    Well, yes, Google corrects the searches, and shows the results for the corrected search.

    As others have said and you've found out yourself, it's not worth it these days as Google has started to correct misspelled - and even correctly spelled - keywords. It's a shame, as you will find a lot of people either make typos when typing fast, or plain don't know how to spell a word. It might be worth doing it experimentally, though. If it's a cheap domain and you don't need to put a lot of work into it then you might get something from people overriding Google's suggestion. I know when Google tries to correct me my reaction is "I know what I meant, thanks", so you never know.
