Incorrectly Spelled Domain Name in Search Results

by @kaylap_caffeine (116), 1 month ago

This is a strange one!

Google/Bing search results show a domain name for our client that is incorrectly spelled. the website is gaylord.org but also showing and ranking gayslord.org. Anyone experience this before?

The strange thing is the domain name gayslord.org isn't even registered. No A record. When clicking a link gives a "This site can’t be reached Check if there is a typo in gayslord.org. DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN" message.

Truly puzzled! How do we remove "ghost domain" from search engines?

I can't see any results for the typo domain name.

What's the query?

If that domain doesn't exist, you should contact Google directly via email.

Please let me know if you're experiencing the same issue with other search engines like Bing, Yahoo, etc.

@zabsports Contact Google directly via email? I don't think that's an option. Curious what's the email though...
