I just noticed today that goto now seems to be grouping misspellings with the correct spellings in the same way that they group plural with singular.

Check Out
"volkswagen" and "volkswagon"

"caribbean" and "carribean"

Both of these misspelling used to pull up completely different results when searched, now the results pages are identical and when you use the misspellings in the suggestion tool it shows 0 matches.

I think this was part of the changes they went through 2-3 weeks ago when their kw tool was offline for a while. They changed their account interface at that time as well.

I used to buy a misspelling from them, and when I tried to update it, I got a response that it was being mapped to the accurate spelling.
