    There is a very popular website. I noticed a common misspelling for it was available and purchased it. Right now the site is re-directing traffic to the correct spelling popular website.

    How can I monetize the domain?

    Park it with ads
    or
    Create a fake login page of that site
    and gather user data and sell that or use yourself.

    Don't setup any fake login page as jass11 said as this might get you in trouble for using a misspelt domain for phishing. Better monetize it with some relevant CPA Offer.

    display advertising or a relevant CPA offer. Don't be suprised if they use UDRP to take the domain from you though if it's a big site.

    Same with many typos for youtube, they must make a killing. (Example, Youtub.cóm & Youtbe.cóm ; this is the same person but has atleast 5+ typos of the site, i've seen a few forum posts on these particular sites where people have actually submitted their phone numbers, so people do fall for it.)
    (These sites are fake and you should not enter your details in!)

    I wanted to get into typo domains but you honestly need to know about a site 2 or 3 years before it gets massivly popular, you could just put an email submit on the website, say it is to get an input into a prize draw curtosy of 'website'.. Just look at other typo domains and tweek it. Looking forward to your reply though and where you go with this, maybe you could pm me the website. I love this kind of genre of domains.

    Most CPA sites will have Mobile offers for people, you just have to create a webpage about the Offer to make it look somewhat genuine, a good prime example would be the sites I said to check out, they've used the background/design of the youtube logo and instead of it saying You-Tube; it says, Thank-You. I know cpaléad have mobile offers.

    cpaléad don't have them international though.

    I would love to have something like this videorewardpanel.cóm, but no matter how hard I try, I just can't figure out what offer is that

    Are you receiving any traffic? Then I think CPA offers related to the site would be the best. But I don't think people get much traffic to such misspelled sites these days.

    hard to say, I am more affiliate marketer then misspelled domains marketer. I just bought few and now I am looking for a relevant offer. So my sites are not up and running.

    Sites like, Youtube, Google, Facebook, and probably Ebay for this matter would get a "lot" of taffic, depending on the typo and how popular it was, ofcourse that requires research and if it isn't taken already.
