The Typo Trap
This is a free SEO tool designed to help webmasters find common typos and misspellings for keywords that are often searched for.
Common typos are swapping 2 letters, omitting a letter or space, or hitting a key right next to another (script here simulating a QWERTY keyboard)
Enter a word and click "Typo" to generate common misspellings
Misspellings and Search Engine Optimization
Why pay attention to typos and misspellings you may wonder ?
It is common wisdom among the search engine experts that there is a lot of traffic to be made from common typos and misspellings : hardly anyone else is targeting them, and an awful lot of surfers search for mistyped queries. Google conducted a survey for 3 months from people looking for "britney spears" : 20% of the queries were mistyped (see survey results)
Targetting typos will bring in massive traffic.
You could also consider it a service for the orthographically challenged, so it does actually add to usability without incommodating searchers.
