Funny enough, I was checking Google’s Keyword Tool the other day and noticed that lots of people are searching for “adsens“, not “adsense”. Clearly a misspelling, but it turns out that there are 110.000 Global Monthly Searches for “adsens“, but only 5,400 Local (US) Searches for “adsens” and the competition is also low:
Can you use the goggle adsens information to generate web traffic?
Yes, If you set up a Pay-Per-Click (PPC) you can take advantage of misspellings. Let’s say you are paying for the keyword “ice cream” it would stand to reason that the most common misspelling of this keyword phrase is “ice craem”. Put that in your keyword list and you will see that there are around 1.000 Global Searches for this phrase. Surprisingly, including misspellings in current PPC campaigns is not always done and this can cause an advertiser to miss out on 100s, if not 1000s, of extra click-thrus monthly. As many clicks from misspellings cost but a fraction of what the correctly spelled word could cost, adding these variations into any PPC keyword list can have a strong, immediate result for your online marketing efforts.
You can also buy misspelled domain names and redirect them back to your actual site or send the traffic to an affiliate offer. We could for instance purchase the misspelled domain “RealTraffikSource.com” and set up a redirect script that reroutes the user to our actual site. This is quality traffic, because only someone who is looking for our site would misspell it like that.
Note: Google has changed the way it displays search results for misspellings. They now show “Did you mean:” with a link to the correct search query and its top 2 results.
Several people don’t use search engines but drop a line directly into the search window, mostly in cases of brand names like Twitter, Facebook or Amazon. If you would be the owner of a mispelled domain, for instance “amazon.co” or “emazon.com” you would get a high daily web traffic just from people who wanted to visit the homepage of Amazon. As you can see, one misspelling had a different ending in the domain (.co), the other one a misspelling in the name itself. If you have a domain like this, you could easily made a redirect to the correct homepage, but with your affiliate link. So all these visitors would come recommended by you and you could make a good commission on the things people bought. To make this forwarding you just have to activate a permanent forwarding (301 forwarding) at you domain company.
