SEO - Question about a domain

Recommended Posts

Im almost sure it will only affect the SEO if searched on the exact text. 

So if someone searches for; yourdomain --> www.yourdomain.com will score better.

 

If someone searches for "bla bla your domain" --> it won't matter.

 

Not sure though, but I have one site with a "-" and one without. So this is just what I think.

Thank you for the reply, how do you think about .com /.net does it make a difference ?

Hey Oliver, I have been in and out of the SEO business for the past 6 or years.

 

Having a hyphen (-) in your domain will not hinder your seo. I believe having underscore (_) will.

 

It also good to note that google prefers sites structered with sub-folders as oppose to subdomains.

 

subfolders e.g: osbot.org/forum

 

subdomain e.g: forum.osbot.org

 

Any other questions, fire away.

Although this may be the case when a site is freshly indexed by Google it really isn't something to worry about as Google learns quickly.

My site are both not that old, around 1 - 2 years right now.

So you could be right about that. 

@Oliver But why take the risk? Personally I would just buy it without "-".

If you are aiming for a national market then pick the one that pertains to your country (i.e. UK = .co.uk, France = .fr).

 

If you are aiming at an international market then there isn't really much in it.

 

These factors of your domain name doin't have much weight when it comes to SEO.

The domain being a .com/.net/.org and so on doesn't have a heavy weight on your SEO whatsoever, the 2015 SEO is based on actual unique content of your website and off-site SEO as backlinks coming from relevant sources within your actual niche.
