||A hypenated domain can get you higher Google ranking..
Google [from what I've been told--don't
quote me on it] will recognize the *first* word in a domain (if there is more than
one), and give it a ranking...So with BaseballScores.com, google will *recognize*
the word "baseball"...With a hypenated domain, Such as Baseball-Scores.com, it will
recognize "baseball" & "scores" separately giving it a higher ranking.....If you
do a WHOIS under some of the prime "key words" dot com domains, you will notice a
lot of them have been reg'd...same thing with dot info...Of course the question is
how long will this last?? Search engines can change on a dime....I prefer good
Note: This is not gospel, so use your best judgement...it's
just what i've been told..
thanks for asking
