    So new domain registration needed for my micro niche.
    Domain name is a 4words keyword like
    Code:
    chatnowfastone
    . The .com, .org and .net are taken. Only
    Code:
    chatnowfastone[SIZE="5"]S[/SIZE].net
    is vailable.

    My question is, should i go with the .net and the S on the end of domain name(which is related to my niche also) or shoul I go for
    Code:
    chat-now-fast-one.com
    with those dashes?

    Appreciated

    I would go with the s.com but 100 marketeers, prob a hundred answers ;)

    I like to keep my domains sharp. Dashed for me looks a bit second choise for my visitors, wich it is.

    Dashes are interpreted as spaces IIRC.

    In my experience google hates dashes and yahoo/bing likes them. Others will feel differently though I'm sure.
