Kisok – the power of mispellings

Kisok - the power of mispellings

An example of a ticketing kisok

It always amazes us at the terms and phrases that end up getting misconstrued for lack of better phrase.

If you sit a keyboard and you type with your left and right hands try typing out kiosk a couple of time and eventually you will end up with KISOK.

I spent over 10 years with KIS also known as KIOSK.  One of my jobs was web traffic and one of the best actions I ever took was purchasing the (and net) domain name. Set up a simple redirect in DNS so that anybody trying to go to and who mispelled kisok then they would automatically be redirected to the proper site.

Probably 1500 a month which is substantial, and saved money on Adwords.

And that is a bit of trivia about the work Kisok (yes it is a real word).
