    sure, it works as well as the non hyphen. The hyphen make it harder for visitor to type in the address bar however, if you are not going to build a brand, it will be ok.

    Agreed, try woodenfurniture-sets.com or wooden-furnituresets.com rather than wooden-furniture-sets.com since it less hyphen.

    :D

    IMHO, that would be more hard for a visitor to remember.

    In the english-speaking world, domain names are always more valuable without hyphens.

    But you can still have a successful, good-ranking website with a hyphen in it.

    However, I really wouldn't recommend two or more hyphens in a domain name! If you have to use a hyphen, OK, but keep it limited to one hyphen per domain...

    In other countries where other languages are spoken, hyphens are sometimes used more frequently than in the English-language world and the rules may be a little different. Here it varies depending on the country and language.

    If you got your answer, you should delete this thread before someone steals your keyword niche

    According to Dan Thies, a hypthen in a domain name is treated differently than an exact match domain.
