Many of you have probably noticed that when people are searching for your brand, they have sloppy typing skills and make some embarrassing
Misspelled domain link building is certainly no secret. What secret I DO have to share is using a tool from SEOBook that leaves no stone unturned when looking for those misspellings. Yes, you could look at branded terms in Google Analytics, but with the cursed increase in (not provided) data, you might be missing out on other versions of misspellings.
The tool I’m talking about is the Keyword Typo Generator from SEOBook. Others may use this to find misspellings in keywords, but I use it for misspelled domain discovery. To get started, type in your domain, click all of the check boxes, and generate typos. Then take that list of jumbled domains, and check the backlinks to them. To do this all at once, use Majestic’s bulk backlink checker. Find websites that are linking to a misspelled version of your domain for some easy-win backlink reclamation!

For a bonus tip, find old versions of your domain (have you ever had a different TLD? What about acquired domains?) and repeat the process.
