This article is intended to inform you about when to ignore a detected misspelling (or a potential misspelling) and when to add the word to your dictionary. Learn more about the difference between a confirmed and potential misspelling. 

Ignore a misspelling/potential misspelling on all pages/individual pages

There are several scenarios of when to ignore a word:

When ignoring a word, it will no longer be highlighted as a misspelling on the site, and it will not be added to the dictionary.

Add to dictionary: After reviewing the word, you have come to the conclusion that the word is spelled correctly. The word may be a part of the your company's corporate language, technical jargon etc. When a word is added to the dictionary, it will be removed from the list of misspellings/potential misspellings and will not be highlighted as an error in future crawls.
