Double-Hyphenation in Domain Names = Trouble?
e.g: example1--example2.com

Thinking of using a domain name which has two keywords but also two hyphens between it (see example above) as an experiment.

Has anyone ever tried this before? Do search engines ignore the extra hyphen? I'd use the domain with one hyphen or no hyphens but it's already taken and the registrant hasn't responded to an offer to buy it!

Well I think you can guarantee zero type in traffic and the owner of example1-example2.com may well have valid objections to example1--example2.com

Bad idea.
