    Hi, I know there have been a lot of talk about it but :

    Would you chose a .info over a .com with dashes ?
    (If you don't care about returning visitors, but only SE traffic)

    and what do you think of domains like for example : buy-sportscars.com , google doesn't make a difference with an EMD, only bad thing I see is If I'm branding something or If I want visitors to come back. This is for a very high exact search keyword.

    I'd take the dot info over dashes all day every day. They rank fine. I've pushed an EMD.info to #1 for a credit card term recently. They work.

    But .com are supposed to be better for SEO, I don't say .info don't rank, but since google doesn't "count" the dashses, it feels like a domain with dashes would be nearly the same as an .com EMD, isn't it ?

    True, but nowadays it's hard to get a competitive keyword .com/.org/.net EMD

    Google does distinguish between hyphenated and non hyphenated EMD. I'd also prefer .info without dashes.
