Find common spelling errors with Google
Is there an operator that can do this?

When you search for a phrase with a spelling error, Google will suggest the correct spelling. For instance, if you search for "inteligence", Google will ask "Did you mean 'intelligence'". So there must be some kind of a database where the correct spelling is attached to the frequent spelling mistakes.

Is it possible to do a reverse search in this database in order to find common spelling mistakes? Is there an operator that can do this?

Hi Brandboerge,
Well I remember the Google Britneigh Spears misspelt list, but nothing beyond that I'm afraid ...

Not always. It's actually kind of stupid in this respect and usually just returns oft searched variations -- even if you enter a correctly spelled word.

You can use the spellchecker in MS Word for this. Find your default dictionary file and you get a ready made list courtesy of M$.

Yes, true. And that's the variations I want, and all of them, when I enter a correctly spelled word/phrase.

That Britney Spears list - [google.com...] - is exactly like what i am looking for. It would be unrealistic to expect search numbers, though...

The MS Word idea sounds good, but I couldn't get it to work - and I am more interested in spelling mistakes based on user behavior anyway...

Of course, it actually doesn't have to be Google, maybe there are other ways.

Searches on [common misspellings] and [common typos] turn up lots of resources already on the web. Of course, they're not compiled from Google's data -- but still they can be quite helpful.
