    When you get your long tail keywords for your niche and one of them is a misspelled keyword, how do you go after it? Do you post a seperate article on your blog with the misspelled keyword in it several times? What if you have a really nice blog... isn't it going to look bad with one of your articles having several misspelled keywords? Won't it look odd with the correct spelling on one article but the incorrect spelling on the next article?

    What if your keyword is melanoma and your long tail is melinoma..... Do your write one article on your blog with the correct spelling and then a seperate article with the wrong spelling?

    Personally I just use web 2.0 sites to go after those, and then link the web 2.0 site to your blog.

    I normally write my article for the keyword and throw the misspelled one in for about half the occurrences.

    I guess both ways would work but I think I would rather just use a seperate blogger blog with misspelled keyword articles linking back to my main site.

    You could also kill two birds with one stone and put in your article, "melanoma (often misspelled melinoma)". An article with misspelled words loses credibility.

    Yeah that way you won't look like an idiot to potential blog followers.

    When I personally purchase products online and in the real world, I don't usually buy shit from someone who seems to be illiterate. Most people draw a connection between illiteracy and stupidity.

    Good point. Ill do that as well. I agree that it loses credibility. Unfortunately some of the niches I'm looking into are often misspelled.

    Consider putting the misspellings in your keyword meta tags.

    I guess it would depend on how much search the misspelled term gets. If it is significant I would dedicate a blog just targeting that one term.

    maybe it is jut me but when i spell wrong i always and always click the corrected link by google, i never see misspelled searches, and 80% if what i type is misspelled :)

    So to answer the question, no i don't think it is worth all the efforts.

    Misspellings are only worthwhile for a select common misspellings, some people go nuts with it and end up with a lot of useless crap on their page that doesn't really drive additional traffic.
