For ladies who insure their cars
Sheilas’ Wheels are superstars
Girls are bored beyond endurance
Payin’ too much for car insurance
For bonzer car insurance deals
Girls, get on to Sheilas’ Wheels
The women at the wheel
Deserve a fairer deal
For bonzer car insurance deals
Girls get on to Sheilas’ Wheels
Women make the safest drivers
We could save a bunch of fivers
For bonzer car insurance deals
Girls, get on to Sheilas’ Wheels,
Girls, get on to Sheilas’ Wheels

  1. I see it more as a way of helping people, that may have miss-typed, still find what they’re looking for quickly…

    Not to mention the fact that it is a widely used practice.

    Some say search engines don’t like bad spelling, others say a website should be designed for real people and people aren’t perfect.

    As for exacerbating the problem and encouraging bad spelling I have made it clear that that I’ve highlighted the incorrect spelling as opposed to hiding them in the keywords, alt tags, descriptions, comments, hidden text, css divs etc…

     

  2. I got that but I thought I’d explain for the benefit of other readers!

    Does read a little defensively but I was actually going for succinct..
