9 out of 10 seo say they buy domains for optimisation with the "-" in between the words, but i still say without is best.
any of you have any light on the subject?
For example if i search for jobs ireland in the directories which one comes first....any of you any good examples to say "-" is better?

I asked the same question [webmasterworld.com] a few days ago.

>>>For example if i search for jobs ireland in the directories which one comes first

Directories are a different matter altogether from spidering engines who may give better ranking to a hyphenated domain.

As the link above establishes it is advantageous to own both the runtogetherversion and the-hyphenated-versions.

agree...you can hand out and advertise the "run together version" and apply all your magic voodoo mojo to the hyphenated versions.

toolman...that's what got me involved in search engine placement. Jim Morrison appeared in a dream and said somthing like "gotta keep on risen"..I figured he must be talking about my future...oh and he kinda looked like a very wise shaman...or was it shambles...can't really remember :)
