I uploaded a page with a misspelling in the page title without realizing it. I started getting hits from google for the misspelled keyword.

Is it considered spamming if you include a misspelling of a keyword in your page title? should I keep it there and also include the correctly spelled keyword?

Nope, it's not considered spamming. Keep it the way it is. Nice way to get traffic, huh? ;-)

Thanks for the reply.

How many times should a keyword phrase appear on a page? is there a lower and upper limit? 10 times? 25?

Don't abuse keywords in page and analyze keyword density of good competitors. If you go for 25 you will spam and won't work.

BTW misspelling, in theory, seems to drive traffic but it looks very ugly...

I'm still experimenting with that.

Does anybody have good results misspelling?

Misspellings can be very useful, whether deliberate or inadvertent! When I'm deliberately misspelling a word, I usually say something like "... widgets, and not wigdets as it's commonly misspelt"

An inadvertent error in an article I posted last week has already had more than 300 searches for that misspelling!
