hi soapystar,

alltheweb is capable of doing this, too. but it won't work if you select the phrase checkbox.

I strongly doubt it... How would they know where the break is? At best, they'd have to guess using a dictionary, but the number of combinations would be daunting.

I do not believe google has separated my title words. Now, for example, I split the domain name (name1name2.com) in the title as name1 name2.com. Seems to work better this way.

You said "i know for a fact that google can read these as seperate words..."

Can you show us an example of where google will treat discountwidgets the same way as discount-widgets?

If it did - wouldn't the search therefore be the same?

If your assertion is correct - wouldn't there be identical results for these 2 searches?

It doesn't treat them the same!
