Being that my browser knows me so well and that I am an excellent speller (uhh…please ignore all typos from now on and from previous posts), I hardly every type in the wrong URL to some of my favorite sites. Sure I might mistype something into a Google search but by then Google has figured out how to correct my mistake and offered a correction. Thanks to them, I hardly ever land on the wrong site.
Earlier today, the other C had me type in wrong URLs for popular websites, such as Facebook. The results had us both giggling and inspired me to keep going. I experimented with replacing “.com” for “.org” or “.co.uk” and in other cases misspelled the site’s name by a letter or two. Now I will use Screenr and Storify to display the results of my quest. I suppose I could just use screenshots or embed everything directly in here, but this is more fun and leaves me with less fussing about with alignment, etc.
Have any of you ever come across any super ridiculous websites as a result of a mistyped URL?
