Suggestion: Google, Implement URL Suggestions

Hey Google… When I mistype a word in one of your URLs (like “adsese” instead of “adsense”), I get sent to a custom error page that looks like this:

Instead of making me re-type the URL, why not just say “Did you mean, Adsense?” and let me click it to go there.

You already have the technology, and it would save me a ton of time. I can’t count how many times per day I type the wrong URL as I bounce between gmail, adsense, adwords, analytics, docs, alerts, calendar, etc. Hell, I spelled 1 of those words wrong while typing this draft.

It’s just a suggestion, and it’s yours to implement freely – but I wouldn’t say no to some free swag when you do implement it 🙂
