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

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.
