Well, what appears to be a spell checker, isn't really one. Google knows that users mistype keywords and tries to be as helpful as possible.
The Google search algorithm does check its index for similar keywords. In case the similar keywords would return more search results (3,030,000 vs. 857,000), it offers this "Did you mean:" hint.

We simply took the video recording of Google™ spelling correction and edited it a second time with different callout bubbles. That is the power of Plan-B technology.
