It can be worthwhile, I got 47 visitors so far this month for
'bisquick recipies' where recipes has an extra i from a Amazon
Customer Review (reviewer spelt Recipe wrong).
Get quite a lot of visitors thanks to those types of mistakes. Without
that one letter I'd be 47 visitors worse off :-)
I don't specifically target misspellings, but would make sense to on
some types of sites, large ones in particular where a lot of pages
target the same SERPs comes to mind.
