    Hey!

    I have a noob question about SERP and URLs.
    Should I rather choose "my-keyword-phrase.tld" or "mykeywordphrase.tld"? Or doesn't this affect the SERP at all?
    I'm asking especially about EMDs.
    I bet this question has been asked more than one time, but I didn't know what to search for, sorry.

    Have mykeywordphrase.com/net/info instead of the hyphens, if you can get it.

    Why choose a domain with hyphens when you can get an EMD ?!

    I don't know why. That's why I asked ;)
    And would you prefer a .info domain over a .org domain?

    Take the .org domain and avoid .info if you have alternatives.

    Yeah, I go for the one without hyphens, if possible.
