Did you know that every day, hundreds of eBay auctions close without receiving any bids? It’s not that no one was interested; it’s because no one saw them—and a common reason is that the auctions never showed up in searches is because the listing contained a typo in the item’s title.

This week’s Monday Productivity Pointers looks at a site called FatFingers.com, which will automatically search eBay for common misspellings of the item or items you’re looking for. FatFingers.com helps you find items you want with low or even no bids.
