    I was looking for EMD domain and only way how i can find it is to use " - " after some words

    Example : www.Black-Hat-World.com or Black-HatWorld.com

    Does that still counts as EMD and will it rank as good as EMD ?

    its just seems that all EMD domains arent available :D
    Thanks

    Exact means exact. So if there's anything in between, its not exact. Does not count as EMD and does not carry EMD boost.

    Sometimes you can just add a prefix or suffix to the EMD words: like "the", "my","best","review".
    "-" is not a very bad solution anyway. If you like the KW, expect good traffic - go for it! Don't overestimate the EMD bonus.

    ? it sucks ? I have - in my domain and i was #1 for 5 months(then penguin came along ofc), ranked it in 2 months.

    Was earning for me more than 100$ per month, but for a micro niche it's good.

    i have some websites with dashes between words and cant see any difference with those without dashes

    however dashes look unprofessional
