    Go with the .info (or a .co if it's available). There is no proof for SEO one way or the other, but people tend to remember things without dashes better than ones with, but they also expect it to be a .com

    The best solution, imo, is probably to get redwhiteandbluekeyword.com, where keyword is something short and easy to remember.

    My advice would be to go for the .com with the dashes or to add a short word after "redwhiteblue." Two or three extra letters at the most would work as long as they do not end up spelling something strange by accident. Getting a .info domain always seems like a gamble because the vast majority of searchers and search engines do not view them as trustworthy. I even had an issue once subscribing to a feed from a .info site. I was trying to add it through Blogger and it would not recognize it at all. It kept throwing up a "site does not exist" message. Typing the .info site's URL in the browser was the only way to get to it. I would say having a .info site is equally not worth the hassle.
