Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
If I didn't think there was a basis for Google to value one of my examples higher than the others, I would not have made the post
that you may want to base your decision off of that.
Me? I use
Red Widget – Red Widget Supplier.
And I name my pages with Red_Widget_Supplier.
I'm beginning to think I see where JackR might be going with this, and I'm going to quote his example, with some emphasis added....
Red Widgets–Red Widget Supplier (no spaces)
Red Widget – Red Widget Supplier
Red Widget ¦ Red Widget Supplier
Red Widget : Red Widget Supplier
Google search and the dash "-" character
What effect does a hyphen have on Google caching and search
I had assumed that the hyphen would be treated the same as a space in Google searches, but that wasn't quite the case. I noted that serps for two-words hyphenated and two words spaced are slightly different.
That would suggest, in the riddle that I'm assuming JackR might be posing, that his first example (with no spaces) is the least good of the four results, and the three remaining would please Google more. I still wouldn't make any distinction among the rest, but JackR might have something up his sleeve.
Robert, you see what I am getting at - is the hyphen still treated as space, or does it no longer matter?
Or, is a " " (space) in fact the preferred option?
