Exclamation Messup in Japanese 4 sure but drop?

Regged what I though was Sweden in Japanese back in 2005 - but I have discovered I got the wrong spelling (I cut and pasted it from some online list of states).

This is what I got:
スウエーデン.com

But "スウエーデン" only gets 61 k on Google

while

"スウェーデン" gets 11 mil. (and is taken since 2004 in the .com)

Very slight difference between them it seems, forgive my ignorance in Japanese but please explain the difference between the sign エ and ェ.

What is it I've got then - and is it worth keeping anyway?

Grateful for comments

Olney has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Re: Messup 4 sure but drop?

There is only a slight difference.
One is right & the other is really close.
This happens with words that use the small eh sound.
Don't think that this happened only to you.
When I was registering Alcoholic beverages Google trends wasn't out then.
I thought I had Vodka with
ウオツカ.com

But it should be
ウォッカ.com
I got it right with the jps though...
but that's a really good typo of it.

Yeah Don't delete it
Measure the traffic first.
If you find you have too many regs & need to slim up your portfolio drop it.
