It is always important that the content on your website (or blog) is up to scratch. Spelling mistakes and typos diminish the impact of all the hard work that you put into Internet Marketing and Search Engine Optimisation. Try using a third party add-on like IE Spell to spell check forms that you fill in online: including content for Blog entries and Content Management Systems.
Of course that won’t help if you mistype a word for which there is an equivalent spelling, in which case you have to fall back on the carpenter’s adage “Measure twice and cut once” or “always proof before publishing”.
(no prizes for spotting the typo in the previous blog entry – now corrected – that inspired this blog entry!)
