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:
- Words that should be addressed at a later date (old fashioned words or irregular capitalization of abbreviations for example)
- Words that are not a priority when correcting errors on your site
- You may decide to ignore the word on individual pages, and make corrections on other more important pages. Learn more about ignoring misspellings or reversing existing spelling decisions.
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.
