Do you ever purposely spell things wrongly when writing web pages?
Do you ever knowingly spell things incorrectly when writing web pages, in order to attract searches from people who input the wrong spelling in their search?
For instance, I have just written a hub about how to make bubble and squeak, and, by mistake I spelled it bubble and squeek. Then I realized that if I spell it that way, other people will probably do so too, and this might affect Google searches. So having noticed the error, I compounded it by repeating it several times in my article. Is this bad?
I always try and have the correct spelling as it might affect your hub score because of bad spelling, punctuation, etc. Yes HP has gotten that strict.
No, I try never to misspell words though I am sure I do. Traffic isn't more important to me than quality.
You stumbled upon what is supposed to be a tried and true method of attracting visitors except that the mistake is not supposed to be repeated in the article, only used in tags.
Don't I sound authoritative? This is what I've read, but it will be interesting to see what others with more experience might add to this question.
I misspell words when I'm talking/writing in the vernacular -- such as "Texanese" where "going to" is often verbalized as "gonna" and such -- other than that I try to spell all words correctly and use them in the right tense. I tend to write as I talk and we verbalize by habit so that has a great influence on my writing. Excellent question!
No My spellings aren't that good anyway but I always check as my articles got rejected on hirewriters for just a few mistakes. My spellings are much better now though due to practice. On hubpages I never intentionally spell incorrectly but try to use more keywords in my articles however I am no good at SEO and increasing traffic so I am trying to figure out how to do that.

I've received numerous purposely mis-spelled comments from visitors. Should I still approve them?I think they might all be from the same source, as each comment has just one or two wrongly transposed letters in a word, and I'm beginning to think I am looking at some coded message. I have...

Is your spelling getting worse?I prided myself as a kid on my excellent spelling. As the years go by it's getting constantly worse. I think it's the fault of Spell Checker, a blessed little program but one that makes us rely on it. Are you having the same experience?

Does anyone agree with me that spelling should be required thru 12th grade?I've seen so many spelling errors on web pages lately. That includes 'help wanted' pages!!!!!! It's a scary thought that our future is in the hands of people that are not even aware that there's a problem.
