Listen. We're all human. We all make mistakes from time-to-time and we're not all the best spellers. And with auto-correct being present on most phones these days, some very awkward situations can arise from a badly placed/misspelled word. In online gambling, however, it appears a lot of us are pretty bad spellers. According to a recent study by Search Engine Watch, the UK has the largest numbers of misspellings, specifically when it comes to gambling terms, in our search engines. Whoops.
A Costly Error
According to the article, a company can gain up to £148 for every click of each keyword. Imagine how much a company must lose when you type a word into the search that's spelled incorrectly! So this is why companies like Google have suggested searches… They don't want to improve your English. They just want to make sure that their clients don't lose out on potential dosh.
So, do a company a favour. Next time you search for video poker, make sure it's not video porker otherwise you'll cost them £148. You might also encounter a lot of videos of pigs.
