  • Brett Saltalamacchia: That's a hard one, I actually have no idea other than including the misspelled keywords - but then you wouldn't want to do that. I'm waiting to see what others say about this  ;.
  • PromozSEO: Do normal optimization and build the authority and trust. No need to include any misspelled keywords. Just go normal..
  • Anthony De Guzman - Toronto SEO Specialist:  ;is about right. Google's smart enough to put two and two together when it comes to misspellings.
  • Ehtesham Shaikh:  ; Thanks for your response, It has a monthly traffic of 15 Lakhs+, around 1000 daily social mentions, around 3% bounce rate, so i think it would be an authoritative and quite trust worthy to Google. So could you please list some more normal optimization tips to follow.
  • Anthony De Guzman - Toronto SEO Specialist: It's hard to say without actually exploring your site. You can simply follow the basic on-page SEO stuff like title, page-url, H1, alt tags -- maybe even go the extra mile and implement Schema markup.
  • Ehtesham Shaikh: Sorry mate i did not get you, did you mean that i should add misspelled keywords in Title, H1 and so on?
  • Anthony De Guzman - Toronto SEO Specialist: Nope, I meant if you have already optimized for those tags for the original keyword (with correct spelling).
  • PromozSEO: I believe that normal and natural SEO will do the job. You should use LSI keywords.
    I don't know if there are any TRICKS to rank for misspelled keywords.
    Visitors, mentions do not guarantee authority. How much % of them are organic does matter.
