    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.

    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.
