Google Recommends Using Microsoft SEM Tools

Jul 30, 2008 • 9:42 am | comments (5) by twitter | Filed Under Google AdWords

Does Google have a tool for suggesting misspellings for your AdWords campaign? Nope! Instead, a Google rep, AdWordsPro Sarah, recommends someone else.

Can you guess who?

Well, in case you didn't read the subject of this blog post, it's Microsoft! A Google Groups thread suggests that you try the Keyword Mutation Detection tool from Microsoft!

However, you also can try to use Google's keyword tool; it just needs to have sufficient search volume to be recorded:

If the misspelling or typo of a keyword has a consistent amount of traffic, you will see these results in the AdWords Keyword Tool. All you would need to do is type in the correct keyword and then sort through the results.

Forum discussion continues at Google Groups.

I'm glad to see Google passing some authority off to another organization, especially in this case! ]:D

I love Microsoft and Google. Lately last couple of months I have noticed a significant increase in traffic from the Microsoft network after using their webmaster tools.
