Example sentences:





Are they interchangeable? Does the meaning change at all? (Googling gives many hits for both, but I feel like should be not used in these situations).

I agree with you. Using を sounds ungrammatical. With 考慮, を should be used, and I think the writer of を配慮 got mixed up.

Thanks for the answer. However, google gives 1,870,000 hits, which is quite significant. I know google can't always be trusted though. – Jesse Good Jun 14 '12 at 3:16
@JesseGood Your link only gives 462 hits, not 1,870,000. google.co.jp/… – user458 Jun 14 '12 at 3:20
Ah, stupid me, tricked by google again! :) – Jesse Good Jun 14 '12 at 3:25
