    Anyone know the best way to ensure that SEO is effective with the URL name I mean whats better to do something like this:

    HTML:
    www.Best-Online-Movies.com 
    or this:

    HTML:
    www.BestOnlineMovies.com 
    in other words do hyphens help or hurt SEO in the long run?

    If you want to target the keyword "best online movies", always the one without hyphens ;) Than you got the Exact Match Domain(EMD).

    I agree. I used to deal with hyphenated domain. I do much better since dropping them.
