I have domain I just threw online recently just to play with. The name is an abreviation of a company name. xx-****x I searched for it in quotes "xx-xxxx" and the results pulled up 2 sites 1 that had the letters xx and the letters xxxx but not together and without the dash. The second site it pulled was mine, so it does seem to read the url but how much it counts for is anyones guess. My site has 0 PR and almost no text on it yet. Anyone that is really interested and wants the term I searched for can sticky me.
