I'm in the process of deciding on the best name for a new website. The city (which I want included) is two words, although if you check for it on google as one word the serps ask did you mean: citypartA cityprtB

My choices are:
cityacitybtypeofwebsite
citya-citybtypeofwebsite
citya-cityb-typeofwebsite

Sguesstions?

Uhh.. you can tell us the City lol
I think it sounds too long of a URL for starters.

Why not CityACityBtypeofsite or CityACityBsite or siteCityACityB? Try not to use hyphens in a dot-com if possible, only when crucially needed.

Never forget that long URL's are a pain in the arse for users to remember and spend their time typing out.

In other words, go for both. Hyphens for SE, no hyphens for people.
