Fixx Yore Speling, For the Love of Pete

Spelling errors on websites shine like a beacon to my eyes -- its almost like a curse or a superpower -- they just jump out at me and I take notice. Some slip by, but even if my eyes were perfect I would love to find an easy way to check the websites that I use frequently or even the ones to which I contribute. Good spelling can even help your SEO -- if your blog is in Albuquerque and you always end up with "Alburqueque," that could hurt your search results.

After a thorough web search, I found just one company that performed shockingly well after a few tests with some sample websites. Spellr is out of Australia but it doesn't seem to affect their success. They offer a free account for small websites (5 scans monthly) or premium subscriptions if you manage more content or would like to automate your reports, etc.

I'm not even at the best part, yet -- all of their services, including full detailed reports and the whole enchilada, is FREE until 2/25.

Sign up for an account (you only need an email and a name -- no billing info), scan your own website, and be amazed at the little errors it finds. Their interface is so simple I'm still amazed -- click on the misspelled word image and it will whip you directly into a screenshot of your website with that word highlighted. How to best use this with your website? Just login to your website editing tool in one browser window and open Spellr in another window, then fix as you go. Or, download your website's report for later use.

Ok, if I gush any more you'll think I work for them. It is just a delight to find excellent services out there, and I hope you agree.

Noel,
I am stealing your line for one of my (very 90's, I know) .sig files....

"That's when the fecal matter hits the air rotation device." :-D
