    Sorry if its against the rules to ask but I really want to know if its worth my time. I have the domain preorder-flowers.com, with the main keyword I'm goin towards as "preorder flowers". On wordtracker its getting a lot of searches supposedly but I think most of its just from the flower part of the keyword. I just have an autoblog set up at the moment but I'm considering making it a rich content site and work on advertising. What do you guys think?

    I think it has potential, too bad it has a hyphen in it though.

    Market samurai doesnt show any searches in google, and the wordtracker google trends tool estimates less than 29 hits per day if you reach the first position in google.

    Timing is the key...If you look at google trends
    Code:
    http://www.google.com/trends?q=flowers&ctab=0&geo=all&date=all
    the search numbers sky-rocket at the start of every year, wait till valentines day or mothers day then promote it till your fingers bleed.

    FWIW writt, I hear that Mack Michaels of Maverick Money Makers says that hyphens are actually good for promoting long-ish URLs.

    IMHO preorder-flowers.com vs. preorderflowers.com does look a lot easier to read. Does anyone else have any opinions please about the use of hyphens, especially with darbensblue's URL? :)

    Personally, I think hyphens look better for longer domains but I would still rather have the dash free version of the URL. I feel that with hyphens potential customers may misplace them: preorder-pizza.com pre-orderpizza.com pre-order-pizza.com OR preorderpizza.com


    Nonetheless I like the flower domain you grabbed Good Luck

    Thanks for all the replys :) I will let it sit for a while and update the autoblog regularly, with Auto Social Poster I should have a good amount of links by the start of next year. Thanks again!
