Google is inadvertently 'healing' my spelling

I just <a href=" obli.net/item/292\">noticed ... that if you make a typo on your blog, you'll get a suspiciously high ranking for that word on Google, as misspelled words aren't that common. If one pays attention to the search engine refers you could almost use Google as a spell checker as it points out bad spellings by sending users who've made the same mistake to your site. It's a slow process, but I find myself correcting at least two of those a month.

Just my unusual way I've come to use Google that I'd like to share ;)
