Hyphens
Does it make a difference to the SERP's?

I have an idea for a new site to use an existing affiliate program I have. I really want a specific domain name because of the possible brand recognition down the line(I can dream, can't I?).

The name is taken.. booo.......... I can get the names if I toss some hyphens in. SO yyy-yyy-yyy.com could be all mine. Will these hyphens make a difference with the SEO of the site?

Your problem may be how well SEO'd and popular exampleexample.com and exampleexampleexample.com are?

If these are doing well you may only feature for longtail keywords etc.

Think long and hard before going down this route, there are usually simpler solutions after a couple of beers:-)

possible brand recognition

And definitely reconsider your idea IF this is a well-known affiliate program, they may be very protective, I know of some that are.

Thanks.

I don't think anything is on the normal domain. It doesn't show up for what I want it to.

Thanks for the heads up on branding, but I checked in on that issue first.
