Hi guys.
I hope this is the correct forum.

I have a site. My keyword is 'KEYWORD'.

Now, if in a sentence i say - "there are many KEYWORDS" - with an s, does it still count as the keyword? and what about dashes?

"look here for KEYWORD-INFO"

Will that be okay? or should I refrain from using it that way?

Same goes for link text, domain names, etc.

Thanks in advance!

"keyword" and "keywords" are two different words with respect to Google.
Searches in Google with plural and singular forms of words show this.

"keyword-anything" is the same to search engines as "keyword anything"

www.keyword-anything.com is a little better than www.keywordanything.com with respect to SEO

I hope this helps....
