Yesterday, I wrote a brief story on Google’s new service named Hotpot. The thing is, when I posted on it, I thought it was “Hotspot” and not “Hotpot.”
Dumb, lazy mistake – I attributed it to not feeling well. @patrickaltoft called me out on it and I fixed it minutes later.
But within that time frame, I received over a 1,000 visits from Google searchers who were also misspelling it.
Here is a screen shot of the referrals I received from Google for people searching “hotspot”:
As you can see, sometimes bad spelling can translate into good results.
I’ll try not to do it again.
