I've heard this, but I don't know if I believe it. I did a site for a band - the domain was the-bandname.com because the domain without the hyphen wasn't available when we did the site. A couple years later, thebandname.com DID come available, and we grabbed it and pointed it to the site. (It had just been parked before - wasn't even in use) Anyway, for no apparent reason anything I put on that site ranks unbelievably high in the SERPS - on the second domain name. In fact, I use it sometimes as a link when I need to boost something else (ork ork) But it didn't rise till we added the second domain name and retired the first, and that one is still pretty recent.
