Most Misspelled Words in Discussion Forums

WebmasterWorld has a very cute thread named What Is The Most Commonly Misspelled Word On Message Boards. Now, this may be SEO related, since misspellings are a great way to gain search traffic that is less competitive, and forums are a great way to get those misspellings. So here is a quick break down of some words in this huge thread.

  • definately --> definitely
  • "There" for "their" or "they're", "advise" for "advice"
  • "than" versus "then"
  • "It's" for "its"
  • loose vs. lose
  • accommodation accomodation acommodation acomodation
  • affect ¦ effect

And many more. Heck, I make these mistakes here all the time. Happens often at forums and blogs.
