    First one.
    Why? Because it's very basic knowledge if you've studied absolutely anything on SEO.

    Always go for the non dash domain if it's available.

    EMD's are when they don't include the dash. Including the dash makes it a non EMD keyword. So the superior one SEO wise is the first :)

    Absolutely friends....without dashes is the EMD.
    simple experiments has great results.... this is the one.

    when it comes to SEO
    if the kw is xxxxxx ....so www.xxxxxx.com is perferct
    but when the keyword is xxxxxx yyyyyy (or) xxxxxx yyyyyy zzzzzz. there is space btwn the words... why not the dashes (acting as space) in the domain perform good in google searches

    For Eg. www.low-competition-kw.com can be better than www.lowcompetitionkw.com
    not finalized.....just doing some experiments

    what you guys think of it ?

    There has been hundreds of questions on this topic, couldn't you just use google search?

    Non dash are the best option.

    If it's taken buy another extension instead of .com, like .net or .org, it would be better than putting dashes on it.

    Hyphens are not good.

    Also,to be fair,hyphens just creates negative effect on the mind of visitor.

    I would buy an EMD for $200 from the current domain owner (especially .com cause they really have an unfair ranking advantage) anytime now that I have tested backlinking nonEMDs like KWx.com

    like.. srsly.. lets discuss?? Discuss the fact that you can't use the search function and abuse a perfectly good topic name. Discussing something is going trough a subject in detail.

    If common sense doesn't tell you to pick the first one, I got news for you..

    I am with www.xxxxyyyyyzzzzz.com because it will appear as a brand name. Google love to rank brand names. It is rare to register brand names with dashes. You can make the domain as brand name by choosing keywords in you link building plan.
