Hyphens in Titles

    An editor added hyphens to a title of a hub so "Easy to Grow" became "Easy-to-Grow".
    When I search for Easy to Grow, the hub is on page 3 of search results, but if I include the hyphens, it's midway down page 2.
    Using hyphens is probably grammatically correct, but most people probably don't include them in searches (or do they?)

      No, I doubt that Google SEO would welcome hyphens titles

    People most likely don't include them. I never do.

    But if you remove the hyphens your hub will not be on page 2 if it is on page 3 right now. So, that's not a cause for concern. The ranking has not changed with the use of hyphens.
