    Just a quick question, which of these domains containing the keyword or phrase would hold most weight in a google search from an seo perspective ?

    eg if the keyphrase is "i luv food"

    then whats best;

    iluvfood
    i-luv-food
    iluvfoodnow
    i-luv-food-now

    or would they all be seen the same as they carry the keyword in the domain name.

    thanks in advance
    J

    iluvfood.com if thats gone then ya next best choice is:
    1) iluvfood.net
    2) iluvfood.org

    If those bad boys are already taken then start with the dashes:
    3) i-luvfood.com
    4) i-luvfood.net
    5) i-luvfood.org

    And if there gone then i would resort to using:
    6) i-luv-food.com
    7) i-luv-food.net
    8) i-luv-food.org

    try to avoid using more than 1 dash"-" you can use 2 and can rank with them but i personally think they look sloppy and reduce the chance of repeat custom to your site/service.

    Check out here for an earlier thread with same question. http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...97161-better-have-dashes-domain-name-not.html
