Hi,

I want to know which domain has more value with respect to a search engine and domain selling.

For example

LLLLLL.com

or

LLL-LLL.com

Where the first LLL could be an adjective like best, super, nice e.t.c while the second LLL could be any word like car, internet, finance e.t.c

I want to know as to which domain name has more value both in terms of a search engine like Google and from domain selling point of view.

Thanks

in terms of value and seo it depends on what the words are.

typically no hyphen is worth more when selling based of domain name alone.

either way register both! lol

I would say that both can get great rankings when done right.

And each affects SEO differant...

no hypen, google sees as a better chance it's an official site for those search terms. Thus boosts your PR

With hypen google can read the keywords better in the url and will boost your SEO for that.

it's kinda like 6 of one half a dozen of the other.
