Spelling corrections feature in Google suggest

Google is already able to inform you about your misspellings that comprise properly spelled Keywords.  Now, you can easily find the mistakes. If you type any misspelled query, you can get suggestion from Google that "did you mean" under the search box.

"These spelling suggestions already exist on the results page, but by moving them to an earlier point in the search process, we hope we've made it faster and easier to get to the results you're looking for. Right now, this feature is offered only for in English, but we're working to roll this out internationally in the near future," explains Google.

A Wall Street Journal article listed some of the most commonly misspelled words in Google and other search engines: "Criagslist" instead of "Craigslist", "Facebok" instead of "Facebook", "definately", "definetly" or "definatly" instead of "definitely", "stilletos" or "stillettos" instead of "stilettos", "mischevious" and "mischievious" instead of "mischievous". Yahoo's most misspelled word of 2010 so far was Eyjafjallajokull, the famous volcano in Iceland that erupted this year. Now, you can start using the suggestion feature of Google.
