I'm a novice to SEO and am wondering - if I'm trying to be "found" by google and I want to rank for the keyword phrase "lets go shopping", is there a difference between www.letsgoshopping.com and www.lets-go-shopping.com?
By difference, I mean will one way be found more over the other if some one just searches 'lets go shopping.' I'm not sure when it's best to use hyphens or not. Would a search for lets go shopping even pick up letsgoshopping?
Thanks in advance to all you SEO experts that will hopefully educate me a little!
from experience all of my hyphenated domains return first page results for competitive terms..it seems to be super easy to rank on yahoo this way too
yes google would see letsgoshopping/lets go shoppingthrow it in google look what happens
i dont think one is better than the other..usually the non-hyphenated are older
this explains well, its older but seems solid
Thanks sunforged - you came through for me again! I just finished reading the link you provided and that was a lot of good infomation.
Now I just need to find the right keywords....I'm trying to rename my shopping blog. Thanks so much!

When I read tutorials my head spins. So please give me an example using my topic: a recipe for baked salmon. If the title is "How to make Herb-crusted baked salmon", and I use the phrases "salmon fillet" "fish" throughout the hub, that's not optimizing right? Examples...

Can anyone help me figure out how to best optimize my hubs? I have several that have scores of 90 and above but they hardly get any views...I'm not sure how I could improve that. Even ones that have been changed by Hubpages' editors still don't get much traffic. Is it just the titles that I should...
