Welcome to the Ramblings of Mr Bump. I am Mr Bump, this is my blog, these are my words, and this is how I see "it" all from the kitchen table at the Bump House.
Today I was reviewing my online articles and noticed that on my top money making article I accidentally misspelled a word in the title. Since this article is my top money making article there was no way I was going to fix it. That got me thinking...
Could the misspelled word be the reason I am making money from it? Should I fix it and see what happens. Would the cash cow article cease? Could the misspelled word actually be a good thing?
I know about keywords and how to use misspelled words to your advantage when searching eBay so I guess it is the same with Google searches. I'll leave it as it is. I also just finished up an identical article of the opposite direction but spelled the same word correctly. I'll keep you posted in a month or so on it's money making progress.
What word did I misspell? Sorry, can't give away my secret misspelled word. Here is a link to the Top 100 Misspelled words although mine didn't make the list.
Does spelling really matter that much?
Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae. The rest can be a total mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Prttey amzanig huh?
Well it does matter to me (even though I am a terrible speller) because I feel it refects poorly on the writer. To cut down on my misspellings, I always proofread everything I write, and try to use a spell checker if one is available, but sometimes misspelled words slip by. It does matter, but it doesn't bother me when it happens. I edit!
Do I want to know if I misspelled any words in my blogs postings? Only if it bothers you, yes, then please let me know.
