A good copywriter knows which words
trigger the feelings that compel people to make decisions. They write with
flair, making it easy for people to be drawn into what they are saying about
your business, services or products. Read an an example of good copywriting for a

A company website should project an image of professionalism and credibility.
One way to help achieve this goal is to ensure your web pages have few, if any,
typos and/or spelling errors.
Every one of us is guilty of making a typo here and there, and some are more
adept at spelling than others.
Over the years, justweb™ has had many MS Word documents submitted
containing web page copy, and even though MS Word has a spell checker, the number of typos and errors that
have been missed is astounding.
A lot are picked up in the formatting stage for website development, but even
then, some are still missed.
Companies whose employees update sites using content management systems (CMS),
shopping carts and Blogs, are particularly at risk of allowing typos and
spelling errors to creep into their content. Managers and supervisors may simply
not have the time or capacity to check the sheer volume of content that is
being uploaded under their watch.
So who can keep your content on the "straight
and narrow" with a minimum of fuss?
Luckily, there is an online spell checker company called
CheckDog who can do
those checks automatically for you. Some of the features of CheckDog are:
Create an automatic online spell check for mistakes in US, UK, CA, AU &
International English website content (new languages being introduced
Unique spellFOCUS technology identifies genuine errors and
View screenshots of errors on the web page & get notified of newly introduced
errors automatically by email.
Automatically identify & spell check new content or spell check only a
specific section of your website - e.g. a knowledge base.
Flag specific content such as blog comments to be ignored during the spell
You simply create an account, add a schedule, and let CheckDog scan your
website periodically (depending on your account type) so that you can avoid those
embarrassing typos and spelling errors. Or you can create an account and do
one-off scans - basically, a pre-paid account (as opposed to a monthly fee).
How easy is it?
The process is quick and easy. The following examples contain screen captures
from one of our clients, Nightingales Wedding Planners:
Browse errors on site (with a summary of all errors on the page, and an overlay
of the errors highlighted in the body)
As mentioned above, there is also a "word cloud" (or tag cloud) which displays once the scan
completes, alerting you to the most likely errors quickly.
There are three levels or errors:
Likely; Possible; and Not likely.
The system is quite clever in that with all my scans, the "likely" errors are
almost always actual errors, the "possible" errors included odd place names,
scientific or medical terminology, abbreviations, or similar, and the "not
likely" errors are almost always not errors at all. Damn smart!
You can add any words
to the dictionary that you know to be correct, for example a place name. Or
you can add words in bulk by selecting all, then simply remove the ones which are
When browsing errors by URL, the system cleverly overlays the errors on top of
your web page so you can see clearly where the mistakes are. It will also show
you any errors in the source code spelling, for example alternate text (used for
images and descriptions) of <alt="show me the erors"> would be picked up and displayed
in a flashing box within the source code. Other possible options include
choosing to have the errors emailed to you, checking internal and external links
in your site, and generating full reports.
What does it cost?
You can try CheckDog for free by scanning up to 100 of your website pages, but
there are currently six different accounts starting off from a one time fee of
$10 (Meerkat Prepaid). This is the perfect option if you have a small website
that you don't update very often and you want to check the spelling site wide.
See the online spell checker plans page
for more details about pricing.
Finally, CheckDog is owned and developed by an Australian company.
