Hi ubk,

I'll speculate on this and hope someone with more intricate SE knowledge will jump in here..

In my mind, 1 and 2 will be just as friendly for search engines - however - from what Ive seen google ignores _ and the words around it... (MSN and others do not seem to work this way, just google )

Again, I am far from an expert on this - but, this is what I have noticed from my own experimenting...

as long as you have the keywords at your domain name it is really not important if they are separated with "-" ( you can not register a domain name with "_" ). Also having keywords at your domain name wont help you to rank better if you have those keywords at your title.

Hi Dolay,

Im assuming he is asking about url titles, vs strictly a domain name -

However, I have noticed that if searching google - the keyword is highlited in my domain name if searched. As are the keywords in the URL, page title, etc...

However, the keywords in the URL are not highlited if there is a _ between the words (vs a / or -, etc..)

Is this something you have noticed as well?
