    Which is better for SEO purposes, mydomain.com or my-domain.com? The domain with dashes is generally easier to purchase (more availability).

    I think both is good but people like to choose mydomain.com instead of my-domain.com

    From my experience Google treats - as a space and thus for eg:
    online-casino.com will outrank onlinecasino.com for the search term with spaces
    "online casino" whereas only for the search term "onlinecasino" without spaces onlinecasino.com rank high.That is my personal experience with my domains.

    To be honest, I dont know what effect it'll bring in SEO world. But for the better investment in domain name, why would you go for my-domain.com while mydomain.com still available? I mean; the price for non slashed domain tends higher. Just my opinion tough...

    It's same, it's not about the way, it's about the "KEYWORDS" , but don't buy a domain like
    www.marketinginternetwebmastermoneyonline.com .... that is completely wrong....

    so that means
    my-domain.com
    mydomain.com

    will rank upon backlinks and etc, both have same keyword.
