    My traffic has been way off for 2 weeks. It started when I added some new links. One of the sites I linked to has a URL like this
    (www.xxx--xxx.com) I have never seen a double hyphen in a url. Does anybody know if this is bad?
    Any thoughts would be very helpfull.
    Thanx

    Double Hyphens were very popular a short while back with some of us who liked to get keyword1--keyword2 domains.

    The double--dash in and of itself should be no factor in the issue at hand. Do check to be sure that you are not linking to sites that are PR0'ed though.

    The double dash shouldn't be a problem as Chief said but if i were an SE i know that -- sites are pretty much sites just for SEO purposes. I guess you could even get a my-----newsite.com I personally wouldn't get a--url.com, but i have no idea if there would be any future problems with it. If i was an SE i would keep a sharper eye on those sites.

    yah, those URL's are pretty much useless for anything other than SEO... I couldn't imagine trying to tell people my site is at www dot blah dash dash blah dot com or www dot blah hyphen hyphen blah dot com :P
    hmm... dash-dash.com is available, but dash-dash.org is taken... weird.
