    That blog post is from February of 2006. That's not the current "state of the art" inside the paid area of SEOBook.

    "hire seo" gets only 320 searches a month. It's probably not a competitive enough term to make a good test.

    I have done some others to Will that was just one example. Here is another one (again not a greatly searched term as it is local to me) "Lincoln SEO" you will see the same page 1 thing happens.

    LincolnSEO.com is in first place (much older than my site) and lincoln-seo.com (my site is in second position).

    I know there are plenty of people who locally compete for that search term as have had conversations with some of them, all of whom have older domains than the lincoln-seo.com one I put in place.

    I am presently working on one for some mesothelioma related search terms (as and when I get time) to see how it works out with such high paying PPC search terms to.

    Jakki there is one problem with that. Most people do not like hyphenated domains. That is to say most webmasters that is. It has traditionally been dominant that non hyphens are viewed as more valuable.

    Yet we still see things like >

    Webmaster-talk.com - A fairly popular webmaster forum

    Hobo-web.co.uk - One the top UK SEO's site

    And many others.

    If you check this thread on NamePros > http://www.namepros.com/domain-name-...main-sale.html you will see a very long conversation on hyphenated domains and some of the prices they have sold for.

    It is better in my experience to buy hyphenated domains to keep and develope rather than for domain flipping (selling on) due to the usual 8 out of ten don't like them figures I have found is usual.

    You never know though you could be lucky. Check some of the prices hyphenated domains have been sold for in the first post on that thread alone and it may have you wondering if you could do the same.

    There is one that it is claimed sold for $55,000 though how true these prices of sold domains are I have no way of verifying without much research.

    You have to wonder why someone has not registered

    mesothelioma-compensation-attorney.com

    for example, as with the right content in place the PPC possibilities with Adsense alone has got to make it and the likes similar to it worth a punt to see if it can be made to work and if not then sold on as either a domain or better still a website with some links and PR etc.

    There are probably many great hyphenated names avaialble for much more searched terms than mesothelioma ones to.

    ^^ Thanks brother,

    I never sale any single domain till now I am buying domains for personal use.

    By using Hyphens i can easily find exact match domain, that is giving exact match power.
    So its have worth {if not give any profit in serp but still have worth, i can research seo factors myself.}
