    I'm trying to ask a simple question about domain types but BHW thinks I'm trying to post links. I can't even say the type of domain extension without the moderation being triggered. I understand the reasoning, but how can I ask my question?

    In December someone at SEOmoz.org asked a similar question and I think the answers found their best represent where EMDs are for SEO these days. Hope this helps!

    A domain name with hyphens is not an EMD!
    .com org or net are the same and carry the same weight.

    The consensus seems to be go with the EMDnet. That was my first choice but I was reading on seomoz a few days ago that Google gives more credit to a com domain rather than a net. But it would make sense to go with the net.

    EMD with another extension without a doubt, hyphens look so unprofessional
