Good topic. I see quite a few people add zip (postal) codes on to the end of keywords and key phrases. It does not end up being a lot of extra traffic, but hardly anyone bids on those terms so cost is very low.

Using a mispelling generator on your popular keywords brings in some traffic

Yep, eliminate spaces, find a missspelling tool.

Keep an eye out for your competitors' keywords. There are tools for finding that out too.

MikaelTC.. Thanks for your reply. What tools are available to find out this information?

I just re-read the ToS and since the link would be nether self promotional nor pornographic I think it's legal.
The tool I was thinking of is called Hitwise, which is very expensive. For small companies they have an offshoot product which does not track specific sites, but does track industries, that tool is called keywordintelligence and costs $90+ per month per industry you want to track. [I just checked in on the product and the basic package costs $90 and includes 3 industries]
This tool tracks the queries that a sample user base uses and then tracks the downstream site, so paid and unpaid listings are included without differentiation.
Since Keyword Intelligence does not break down individual sites the tools may not help you if your site does not fit into one of their many industries. The company I work for now, for example, does not and we need the full Hitwise package. There are many enough and diverse enough tracked intustries that most sites will find a good match, however.
