    Is there any difference for SEO between those?

    I apologize if this is a dumb question. Thanks for your answers.

    With hyphen/without hyphen doesn't make any difference in seo. I seen website with hyphen also ranked no:1.

    Don't use the hyphens. It looks spammy to visitors.

    What saber210 said. After the last EMD Algo update, EMDs do not rank as well as they used to. Go with a PMD and if possible a brandable PMD. You won't need to have hyphens then.

    text1text2text3 is definitely better.

    I can't think of 1 website I visit with dashes/hyphens in the domain.

    Hyphens/Dashes complicate & confuse. Be precise, accurate, & attractive.

    1 hyphen if you really must. Any more just looks too spammy
