Top ten grammar mistakes on web pages

February 20, 2008

Shortly after posting the article on “Blogging. An excuse for poor communication?,” I came across an excellent article by Robin Nobles at Search Engine Workshops called The top ten grammar errors that haunt Web pages. Robin points out that “our websites are our online storefronts, and if our sites are full of errors, what does that say about our professional image?”

In this frank discussion about grammar, Robin talks about many of the more common mistakes people make as well as some spelling issues that are specific to the web world. It’s well worth a read for anyone who is confused about web site vs. website or e-mail vs. email. And what’s the plural of e-mail anyway? You may be surprised!
