    Hey!

    I have a question regarding domains and how good some are for SEO.

    Let's say that I own those domains:

    buybooksonline.com
    buy-books-online.com
    booksonlinebuy.com

    and I want to target "Buy books online" when someone searches on Google.

    Which one of those domains would be best for SEO?

    They are are the same. But the "-" might be easy for people to forget and end up going to the wrong site. If anything the first one makes the most sense.

    I agree with him. I rarely see sites using signs in the name anymore.. no matter how long the name is, they just go it without signs.. it's like a new trend lol..

    i dont think it would be a huge impact but obviously without hyphens is better. But i think hyphen EMD is better then a domain without EMD
