Seo 2 keywords domains - dash or no dash

I'm registering a new domain on which I'll try to rank for multiple terms with dedicated content pages.

I'll try to rank with the home page for a term composed by 2 keywords, let's say rocky mountains

do you think it's better rockymountains.com or rocky-mountains.com ?

both .coms are available

Do you know anything about domains

RockyMountains.com = ROCKYmountains.com = ROCKYmouNtains.com is all the same thing genius.

I would go with out the dash simply rockymountains.com I hate dashes, having no dash and with dash is really not going to make a different on SEO.

The separate words are parsed by Google so definately go with RockyMountains.com.

Get them both, but build the site on the domain without the stupid hyphen.

What he said.

People don't remember, rocky hyphen mountain dot com, but they may remember rocky mountain dot com.

You also don't want people completing against your site by using the hyphenated version.

Google doesn't care about hyphens. If you're not interested in branding your site, hyphens are as good as anything else.

I've managed to get domains with no fewer than five hyphens in the domain into the top 10 for reasonably competitive niches.

1) Yes, RockyMountains.com was only an example

2) If you think RockyMountains.com was available before this thread then you're really a retard and haven't purchased a domain before.


To answer your question again. You'll get more authority for the no dash without any doubt (Tested it on 13-15 sites). However, I have noticed that sometimes I will have a higher CTR with the dash included because it is easier to read to the searcher. So, if you can buy them both, do it. Then run the site on the no dash while running any paid ads to the dash and redirect it to the no dash.

Obviously no dash is better, but what about

rocky-mountains.com vs rockymountainsdildorental.com ?

Short and sweet with hyphens, or way too fucking long with no hyphens?

If you are going to throw the word "retard" around at least learn how to use "your" and "you're". As Dimaseo pointed out, your reading comprehension sucks.

You fail at reading comprehension too. Even though it was already explained to you twice, it was a hypothetical question.

To answer the OP, buy them both, and take the .net/.org versions too, if for no other reason than to keep your competitors from getting their hands on them.

Newbiealert

I would go rockymountians.com in a second, but have a similar question since I am in a similar dilemma.

I am launching a site focusing on two sub-nitches of a bigger niche market. As an example lets say my site is going to be on sailboats and yachts. So I bought sailboatyacht.net and sailboat-yacht.net (.coms all taken)

Now the way the site will be set up there will be two seperate catagories one for sailboats and one for yachts, but the two keywords hardly ever appear together in my site, but do get searched together, a decent amount of times.

Would using a hyphenated domain in this example work??

Reading comprehension fail. He said "So I bought...". Past tense. That would mean the purchase was already made, and in fact it was made in February.

You, like the other idiot above, need to learn how to use your, and you're, before you go around calling people retards. Should have though about that before you "postet" it.

@OP: If you have the choice of both, get both, market the one without the hyphen primarily. And far as being picky due to cost... if you're not expecting to earn back at least the registration fee of both domains, why bother with them in the first place?

You wouldn't believe the variety of people online, in just bout every message board, that cannot properly use "your", "you're", "their", "there", "they're", etc.

Buy both. Even though someone above said capitalization doesn't matter, it makes a difference when you market it. rockymountains.com vs RockyMountains.com - Same domain but when you put the name out there, the second will have more impact

To the OP, if/where possible, don't forget to buy both the singular and plural version of the (word) domain

ex. RockyMountain.tld AND RockyMountains.tld

Years ago, I regged the plural version of a competitors name and redirected to mine -- only took a week for the guy to find out, and boy was he pissed. You snooze you lose.

And as others have said - if you're really confident with making it succeed (and/or plan to brand it). Take a couple hundred and reg all versions on at least the 3 major tld's and forward them to the main .com
