    Hello, I have one domain which is about 2 keywords. But the domain name doesn't have anything to do with the keyword about the domain. Now i saw that
    keyword1-keyword2.com is free should i move.
    I'm on the second page for that keyword with my domain now but i think it would be easier to get to the first page with the keyword1-keyword2.com
    What do you think? help me please.

    sorry if I couldn't explain it. Lets say my page is car.com and my keyword for the page is "bmw" now i see that bmw.com is free. So the question is should i move to bmw.com? or keep the car.com page, because when you search for the keyword i'm ranked on the second page

    I would say you make a subdomain like bmw.car.com!

    More effective!

    If along with bmw, you plan on adding a page about merc, then I would say go for car.com, or else go for bmw.com if you want to build a site solely for bmw.

    Does it have a hyphen? If so - no, it's not worth it! Also 2 keywords together will only create confusion. Stay with what you've got and add value to it, look for one keyword (or one keyword phrase) exact domain if you want a boost or to make a switch.

    Unless you are talking about 2 word keyword phrase, then it's a different story...

    My thoughts exactly. It definitely wouldn't hurt the site. I could see it improving traffic noticeably.

    So are you saying that hyphens are bad?

    Make a subdomain for that very keyword and optimize for it. Or you can make a separate page for every category and in this way more content that is fresh and unique will be generated.
