Blog Tip: Sometimes it is good to spell wrong

A few months ago I had written about the Motorola KRZR on my mobile phone blog. That thread dominated my top post lists for more than 60 days. A few weeks later, I get a comment from MobileBurn’s Brad Kellet saying that I had spelled KRZR wrong – I checked my post and tadah – the “Motorola KRAZR” had me in a bad spot with a wrong product name. I had forgotten that the “A” in KRZR was silent.

But if you do a search for “Motorola KRAZR” in Google, I’m number one! What does this mean? If you have weirdly spelled product names, it may be cute to spell it like the way it sounds so that the masses get the more search-friendly term!

And that my friends, is my original SEO tip for you!

Ah I believe that. I am a fan of the American Idol reality show. I mispelled Kellie Pickler to Kelly Pickler. Soon I found out my blog soared so much hits for my mispelled name. I earned so much Google adsense for that blog during that season. That’s how I started my American Idol blog and now the Philippine Idol blog..
