hyphens in domain names|
From Ron Jourard on 23 April '99
I am a criminal lawyer and have registered domain names "criminallawyer" and "criminal-lawyer." I have not yet virtually hosted either. My dilemma is: which name will increase my ranking most if someone is searching under the keywords "criminal" and "lawyer." Does the answer depend on the search engine? Might the hyphen be interpreted as a minus sign and result in exclusion of documents containing the word lawyer.
