    This might be a dumb question but I'm going to ask any way. Does Google like a few typos in articles etc.. for SEO as I read a lot about natural content being a key tool in SEO. I suppose what I'm trying to say is, if the content is perfect in text, grammer etc.., will it be seen by Google as over optimized?

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    I have a client that targets a demographic that is not overly literate but who are online a fair amount in his niche and he regularly has typo content. I joke with him a little bit about it because I'm a bit anal about the content on my sites but it is not an issue for his stuff.

    His sites rank fine and look very natural to his target visitors and in all reality I believe he is spot on and I'm putting too much emphasis on perfect content.

    Too many typos seems dangerous. You going for misspelled long tails?

    Na, I'm currently building a comparison site and just looking into different ideas for my SEO strategy. I thought that maybe having a few typos might feel more natural and not over optimized to Google.

    No it will be seen as a low quality site.

    Just don't over do it, that's my advise, 2 in a 500 word article won't be bad
