    Erm Martine Lewis, Martin Looez.....can't think of anymore that aren't getting very unlikely.

    Just thinking though won't it take ages before these get picked up by google or is that only the case with my site because its small and insignificant lol?

    Some kind of spelling adjustment would be in order methinks... ;)

    perhaps read the blog entry

    The other way to do it is to put some hidden text on the home page with all the different spellings, i.e. tiny white text on a white background. I discovered this while searching for cheap Barbie stuff for the kids and was often redirected to !!!!!! sites which had done just this - SICKOS :mad:

    Luckily the wife was watching and I could prove it, otherwise it might have been a bit embarassing :o :rolleyes:

    I think you need to use an eBay MoneySavingTip here. There are those sites like FatFingers.com where you can find misspelt keywords on eBay - for example say you were into collecting Wedgwood china, you put that keyword in and it finds all the auctions with spellings like Wedwood, Wegwood and so on (the idea being that you can pick up bargains because very few people find them because most people know how to spell it)

    So, put "Martin" and "Lewis" separately into FatFingers.com and you get...

    nartin, martim, martib, msrtin, marton, martun, maryin, marrin, mirtin, martan, martii, marttn, marrin, maatin, mmrtin, martinn, martiin, marttin, marrtin, maartin, mmartin, martni, maritn, matrin, mratin, amrtin, marti, martn, marin, matin, mrtin, artin

    Sticking all those as hidden text on the home page should cover most eventualities :shocked:
