(blogware)-> shamed into fixing my spelling (some of it anyway)

So I have been playing with google, and one of the things it will give you is "top search querys", a list of keywords that your pages will show up for.|
Of course, Number three on the list for kangry.com is the word "actually"..... well not actually that word, but rather, how I seemd to have beleived the word was spelled. ( one "L" instead of two). Google gives about 125 hits for that spelling of the word on my site. (most objects can be displayed more than one way, so I didns't actually make the mistake that many times.
Ok it's just pathetic. Tonight,I beleive I have corrected every occorance of that word on the site. (This will explain the large number of comments "updated" today.) I know the whole site is full of miss-spellings, but when I get so bad at it that that is a "top search term" ...
It will take a while, but eventualy, google will refresh it's caches and that word should dissapear from all refrences. (ofcourse, the arhive will still know about it. )
I do try to correct my spelling when I see that it is wrong. Recently I corrected the spelling I had for
Wappinger Falls because I noticed that I got a hit from a google page that started off did you mean... with the correct spelling.
In some cases I have intentialy left misspellings in place because I like the hits I get from them. Two examples are
satalite instead of satellite and NyQuil instead of NyQuill. It's hard to say where I draw the line, I guess I figure if it's a reansable misspelling, I don't see a problem with leaving it on the page, but if it's just wrong, and isn't even part of the topic.. I just makes me look stupid. ( which I clearly don't need any more help at ;-) )
Add comment or question...:
