    Hi,

    I have bought a domain name for a micro niche site, and i want to know i could rank with it ...

    I won't tell you the exact domain as i don't want people stealing the niche :D

    I have bought exact keyword domain with hyphens (-) between each keyword .. on a .info domain lol .. it looks stupid!

    e.g... for how to lose fat, i have chose how-to-lose-fat.info ... Mine is also a 4 word domain!

    Will my site rank well if i do proper seo? .. I just can't imagine seeing a .info on page 1 of google .. especially one with 4 hyphens in it

    p.s the niche i am promoting has 14,000 monthly searches with Low competition (130,000)

    It might look spammy to google but anyway, you can give it a try and check out yourself. Btw, don't spend too much time u you don't get any result.

    You can rank but with that keyword it will be hard even without hyphens

    You might have to age it for a while before rising through the ranks.

    Yes, you can. It's just going to be harder.

    Not for the .info but for the 4 hyphens. The less hyphens the better, no hyphens the best. Imo.

    But if you take care of your SEO properly and the keyword is really not that competitive you have a good shot.

    Agree with the replies here already. There really is no hard evidence that you can't rank a domain with hyphens in a .info, but these type of domains are more often than not perceived as spam.

    You can rank with a .info but will be more harder,and the hypens the same thing,you will need a lot of backlinks.
