www googl com

googl.com? I thought this domain name belonged to Google Inc. and should simply resolve/redirect to google.com. Wouldn't that be a reasonable assumption?

Well, turns out googl.com does belong to Google, Inc. and even uses Google's nameservers ns1.google.com etc.
However, for some reason they chose not to redirect to google.com

I'm just wondering how many visits Google is missing by not redirecting the misspelled googl.com domain? I'm sure they have traffic to burn but this misspelling must have been typed in thousands of times a day!
