    Hyphenated Exact Match Domains (EMD)
    I have a quick question that I've been thinking about lately.

    I know that its argued whether or not EMD's provide SEO value, but let's just assume that it does for a second.

    I've read that hyphenated EMD's like "red-shoe-laces.com" perform pretty close to equal compared to EMD's without hyphenation like "redshoelaces.com"

    My question is, would the EMD lose any value if it were instead "red-shoelaces.com"?

    Let me know if you have any insight on this. I'm very curious.

    Thanks!

    IMHO its a psychological reaction and depends on how one would read it. If shoelaces is more relevant than shoe laces, go with that. Its also a matter of what is available. It has been said many times that its better to purchase a .com then a .co or .cc.

    Thanks, I haven't been getting instant notifications for replies to my threads even though I'm subscribed to get them. Is that a common problem?
