    Hey,
    I was looking at celebrity profiles on twitter and instagram and i found a well known one with over 1 million followers, the url displayed on the profile, has never been registered before, it must of been misspelt. Do you think the url link in their profile gets many clicks?
    seeing as it's only in the profile section, and he could also correct spelling at any time. is it worth purchasing?

    That's a interesting find. Are you sure the mispelled one is the one the profile? If so you may be able to ride this wave for a while.

    Bit of a waste of money, celebs own copyright to their names

    Looks like you've found a free ticket to 15 minutes of fame ;)

    If you're creative, you could tie this to the celebrity's work somehow, maybe generating light (and legal) controversy, if you manage to you get a famous highly linked site that shows how celebrities cal mispell their domains.

    Want to amplify potential earnings and time before the celeb gets enough messages to realize what happened and change their link?

    Make a complete copy of the website they intended to point the bio URL to, and link to whatever you want, or add a shop page to it or something.

    Yes buy it. Just redirect to a Teespring shirt based around the artist or something similar for easy $. I would try to not draw attention to it, so nothing controversial, make it look like it could pass as something from the artist.

    It can be worth it, and you should definitely try, sometimes misspelt domains get a lot of traffic

    You was right, it didn't work 150 visits in 3 days, then they changed spelling back. I tried anyway...only $6 spent, i will use domain for something else.
