    I heard from a friend that optimizing your sites for mis-keystrokes words, typos, etc can be useful.

    is this true? I see a couple keywords on google that people search for that are misspelled.

    However, I'm not seeing any results. I'm not even on the front page for them. I even used one that had 0 competition.

    However, then I noticed what google is doing. They are bringing up results for what you "wanted" to search for but not what you typed in the search bar.

    Does this mean this is useless now?

    Not even remotely useless. First remember that while G may bring in the most traffic it doesn't bring in ALL the traffic. Yahoo and Bing will still bring you traffic from these keywords. Also are you optimized for the best misspellings? I get good traffic from G from misspelled words. But I get better traffic from the other search engines.

    Here is a good website for creating misspellings:

    not bad at all but must have to be in appropriate extent, because with SE's "Misspelling" suggestion features it has been noticed that visitors clicked on it to search for the results of the keyword they typed in.
