9 out of 10 seo say they buy domains for optimisation with the "-" in between the words, but i still say without is best.
any of you have any light on the subject?
For example if i search for jobs ireland in the directories which one comes first....any of you any good examples to say "-" is better?

I asked the same question [webmasterworld.com] a few days ago.

>>>For example if i search for jobs ireland in the directories which one comes first

Directories are a different matter altogether from spidering engines who may give better ranking to a hyphenated domain.

As the link above establishes it is advantageous to own both the runtogetherversion and the-hyphenated-versions.

agree...you can hand out and advertise the "run together version" and apply all your magic voodoo mojo to the hyphenated versions.

PS: "magic voodoo mojo" is a registered trademark of Hunter Corp.

toolman...that's what got me involved in search engine placement. Jim Morrison appeared in a dream and said somthing like "gotta keep on risen"..I figured he must be talking about my future...oh and he kinda looked like a very wise shaman...or was it shambles...can't really remember :)
