    I have found and exact match misspelt keyword with 10,000 searches a month with a .net and .org domain available. The .com for the same misspelt word isnt ranking in the top 10 at all. The competion is a mixture of pastebin posts and some forum posts but they are relevant so G is detecting this word as suitable. So my question is, if I buy one of the domains should I also use the misspelt word in the articles and posts on the site too.

    Thanks!

    Great question islandman1010,

    It's always tempting to use a misspelled keyword in title and copy of your website however I would proceed with caution. Although you may be ranking for it, think about how your visitors will perceive the website. This is especially important if you are selling something. When people see poor grammar or misspelled words in website copy, they immediately lose confidence in the website and are more likely to leave. It simply does not look professional. Further, people often do not intentionally search for misspelled words and it is likely a mistake. Just because they accidentally used a misspelled keyword does not mean they will have confidence in a site that has used the exact same spelling in website copy. If you want to include the keyword phrase in a place where the user cannot see it that would be fine however I would avoid putting it in copy of the website.

    Here is an article talking about the merits of using such tactics,

    Hope that helps you,

    It depends if the misspelled term is usable Remember, Drupal was due to a typo in domain registering and they were able to turn it into the best CMS on the planet.

    It's also important to note that Google will often just correct the typo before the search is even performed. So even if you rank #1 for the keyword, a lot of the people who type in the typo won't see you at all since Google by default changes the typo to the correct word. And even if Google doesn't have the typo in their database today, there's a very good chance they'll add it in the future. It's not a very solid foundation for a business.
