ok...i have few urls: webmasterworld.html
web master world.
some engines will read the whole entire word and return the results with that only webmasterworld
but how do they read the dashes in between words, do they know it is a dash and therefore separate the word or do they look for exact results...
basicaly would they read the one with dashes the same as the one that is completely separated?
thx g

Hi nube - This has been discussed to death in the Domain Name Forum... My experience is that the domain name means little on most leading engines anymore. One recent thread is at [webmasterworld.com] and another good one is here [webmasterworld.com].

thanks dave, but i was talking about the extension to the page its self
its the slashes in the page name, for instance msn weighs in on how the page name is, web_master_world.html, web-master-world.html and webmasterworld.html would bring different results if there were more than one wmw...the webmasterworld might not be the best candidate but try newyorkhotels.
thanks g
