Vidios, Vidio, Vedio, Vedios and Six Vedio

Note: If you came here via search engine, you can find lots of videos here. Go on, click it, that is what you’re probably looking for. 😉

Now, let’s get down to business. Those words I’ve listed on the title are not found on the English dictionary. But people are searching for it. Is video that really hard to spell? Actually, someone landed on this blog searching on Yahoo for six vedio. I have a couple of videos here on my video category, actually, more than six, if that’s what he’s really looking for, hehehe.

So, what’s this blog post all about? Some people are casting doubts on my mini-SEO contest saying that since vedio, vidio, vedios and vidios are typographical error, no one will click the search result but rather search for the the correct spelling after realizing their mistakes. Well, good point. I really like people questioning me. At least, I have something to blog about. Hehehe. Of course, they might be right, I might be wrong. So, I’ll just give my side of the story, since I’m the originator of this contest, and let you be the judge.

Yes, they are correct if the one searching are English speaking people like us. Of course, once we know that we made mistake, we’ll simply retype the correct spelling and search again. But if you look at the Google Trends, these searches are coming from non-English speaking countries, which means that they really don’t know how to spell video. Even some of their news sources use vedio instead of video on their articles. Here are samples. Hehehe. So, what’s my point? If you don’t know how to spell a certain word and you googled it, will you immediately realize that you made a mistake even if there are 6 million search results in front of you? Or will you scan the results first before checking the suggested spelling from Google?

Well, let’s just wait and see. I think, I’ll be hitting the first page next week, since my blog post is already on the second page now. Hopefully, this one hit the first page too. I’ll show you some statistics if I hit the first page.

Feeling ko, mapapaaga ata akong maubusan ng bandwidth this month. Hehehe.

That’s all! Feace!
