You should also remember that most of the people have the chance to misspell words. You also have to prepare special entry for these. Include misspelled word to take the chance inviting more traffic in your website.However,i was wondering that is misspelled word a praticable method in the long run? Your true thoughts?

If you don't include misspelled words, and a potential visitor/customer types in a misspelled word into a search engine, how would they ever get to your site? As long as people are not perfect spellers, I think you're going to need to include commonly misspelled/misspelt words. Hopefully the search engines won't penalize you for doing that. If you don't want to put them in your visible text (and look like a dolt), about the only other place would be the meta keywords. Remember that some search engines (e.g., Google) don't place much weight on meta keywords, due to past abuse by page designers. alt= entries might be another place to use them "more naturally". If certain (commonly misspelled) words are so critical to getting visitors to your site that you can't do without them, you might put a small text paragraph down in the footer labeled "Keywords" and include both correct and incorrect spellings there. I would not use hidden text (e.g., white-on-white) as that's considered black hat SEO and could get you penalized.

Well i also heard some people include misspelled words but i practically will never include it in my targeted keywords or content intentionally as i think search engine it self give suggestions did you mean this? such type of so people can easily correct that. I would not count such typos in my strategy
