    I'm kinda stuck in a seo dilemma. I want to purchase a .com domain(so I need coupons ;) ) but the keywords I am targeting has been purchased only the hyphenated versions are available.

    Domain I want Example: www.technologymarketing.com
    Available domains : www.technology-marketing.com

    There are some SEO Experts who completely abandon the idea of hyphenated domain names. [HELP]

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I find a lot of members out here setup autoblogs based on .info domains! Are .info domains that good for seo?

    Non hyphenated domains have only more value if you are trying to sell the domain without development.

    If you intend to develop the domain, then a hyphen is not a problem, unless you will advertise it over the phone or something of that kind, because it sucks to say keyword hyphen keyword..

    From SEO point of view i have not seen any problems with hyphenated domains and ranking them.. If they are exact keywords then they are great to rank.

    As for .info, i avoid them, because i had a bad experience with a few sites that had a really hard time to rank, when an .org or .com with the same competition was up in the top 10 with less than half the work.
