Why do we need to do this
Google believes that high quality sites will have better spelling and grammar then low quality sites and rewards these sites with higher rankings.
What does this mean
Google believes that pages that have better spellings and grammar are on average better pages than the ones that do not and reward the pages that have the better spelling and grammar. It is also logical that guests searching for a hotel will think negatively of your hotel if they see spelling mistakes. Will your lack of attention to detail extend from your website to other aspects of their stay?
What do I do: Personally I write all my content in Microsoft Word and it points out all my spelling and grammar mistakes to me. Another useful tool is http://www.grammarcheck.net/
Then do the following.
Remember this is a machine and you should carefully consider the text, also sometimes complex words are more appropriate to give an emotional and high quality description such as “sumptuous and luxurious restaurant”.
