TAYLOR SWIFT NAME INFO
Each month 18,000 Swifties type the name “Taylor Seift” into their Google browsers, while a further 8,000 search the term “Taylor Swoft”. Some of these errors are keyboard slip-ups which happen on smartphones with a small typing area, where users accidentally press an “e” instead of a “w” for the second letter of Taylor's surname, as the two keys sit right next to one another. Users either do not realise they have misspelt her name, or they cannot be bothered to alter it once discovered.
Total misspellings of Taylor Swift’s name add up to over a million searches per year. Of course, Google cannot say who exactly is carrying out this Taylor Swift search info, but one can assume that many of the incorrect spellings are from very young Swifties. Google’s info does however tell us where the bad spellings are coming from — in this case, Australia, America, Canada, the UK and Brazil. As Taylor’s popularity grows, this picture is expanding across the world’s developing nations.
The culture of misspelling online is fascinating, as Google’s algorithm automatically calculates what the user is really trying to spell, and directs them to the appropriate site. This ensures that even when Swifties get it wrong, they get it right.
