Keywords or domain name?

"keyword1-keyword2.com" or "keyword1 keyword2" in the link text?

I have a domain keyword1-keyword2.com that I would like to promote by encouraging people to link to me. The website is known as either keyword1-keyword2.com or "keyword1 keyword2". Should I try to make people have "keyword1-keyword2.com" or "keyword1 keyword2" in the link text? The advantage with "keyword1-keyword2.com" is obviously that I make it clear what my domain name is. How much of an advantage that is, that I don't know. Using "keyword1 keyword2" in the link text should be a slight advantage when people search for "keyword1 keyword2" in google, yahoo etc.

What are your thoughts?

In my opinion, either way is fine, you are splitting hairs. Just the kw1-kw2.com may be more natural since a lot of people naturally put the domain name in the link.
