I like to buy a new domain and want keyword presence in the url. One word domains are rare and may not available. So am go for two words domain like for example "templatespark". My question is adding an hyphen between words(like "templates-park") will benefit me in SE ranking? Which one would be best?
Suggestions please.

When you use hyphen, it makes everyone harder to write or remember your domain. So my vote for non-hyphen too.

yes, people will be forever confusing your template-spark with template_spark..... I go with the no dash consensus.

1 word domains are too expensive!

but then again, without the hyphen templates/park could be easily mistaken for template/spark ... such as penisland ... maybe that doen't bother you though ... ?

well template spark actually sounds really cool :D maybe even cooler than templates park. So that's a win-win... much better than penisland... hahaha although come to think of it, I bet they get more hits from the misunderstanding than from actual pen buyers... come to think of it again, maybe they intentionally included the erotic innuendo into their web address to elicit attention......

what about using "o" (the letter) in between words like PotOLuck or something like that...where you would otherwise use of?
-- That's what I read it as, template spark.
