Introduction to Typo Assassin

Typo Assassin is a web service that lets online business owners with affiliate programs sleep easy at night, knowing their profits are protected from typo domain thieves. If you are worried about how typo domainers could be costing you and your brand, try out our typo assassin search engine and put an end to ILLEGAL typo domain affiliate commission theft today.

What it Does

Typo Assassin is a custom search engine that hunts down and identifies existing domains that are typo/miss-spellings of your domain, product, names of people related to your brand/company, or anything else that people might type into the address bar to find your product.

And it’s a lot of traffic: Up to 60% of a brand’s traffic is a result of direct navigation or “type in” traffic so typos of your brand can add up to a lot of intercepted clicks. Some of these domains are harmless (e.g. foreign company with similar domain but unrelated to your business) but most are registered by someone trying to leech traffic and possibly commissions from you. This isn’t just some inconvenience, it’s an illegal act (yes there’s a law against it) and it’s easy to stop the commissions from leaking and keep your profits for yourself… if you know who’s doing it.

2 Minute Video Explanation

What You Get

Typo Assassin makes it easy for you to spot the various types of typo domain thieves. You see a screenshot of the website that the link redirects to – if it looks like your site, it most likely is and is a result of an affiliate link – that’s money that should be in your account but you’re paying “commissions” instead. Using our link tracer, you can then home in on the big offenders who you are paying every month. Then simply stop paying them (unless you are OK with this type of theft).
