    From a resale perspective the non-hyphenated version is definitely favoured. It's also easier to relay to customers and brand if there are no dashes in the name.

    Without hyphens I would say there's less chance of people making typos when navigating to the site and remembering it correctly also.

    If I were you, I'd prefer something with hyphens.

    Definitely freetrickstips.com - but now you announced it to everyone so it might not be available.

    Good luck!

    I personally use hyphens with my keywords
    ex. pretty-red-car. ---
    For SEO purposes this has worked really well for me.
    Hope this helps

    I think freetrickstips.com will be more suitable than the hyphenated one...

    Hi caronprice
    The best way to decide is to do a split test.
    Try one domain with hyphens and one without. Use good on and off page SEO practices and you will be able to determine which works best for you.
    A very good site for learning this (which is free) is webceo.
    Hope this helps

    i like how domain names look without the hyphens. also when telling someone about the site you don't want to say "go to free hyphen tips hyphen tricks dot com". might be easier to to read for longer domain names at first glance though.

    I agree with you totally Frank. It would be very difficult to remember a domain name filled with hyphens.
    I am strictly speaking from an SEO perspective
    I personally have never made a sale from giving out my domain name or telling it to someone.
    TEST-TEST-TEST That is where the $$ is made.

    My bad, I just noticed I used "with" instead of "without" here..Of course, without hyphens. Such a stupid type.

    The second domain name is better of the two displayed above as it is easy to remember as it does not contain any hyphens. Hyphened domain names should always be avoided.

    Avoid Hyphens, when non-hyphen is available! If both are available register both and forward it to main.

    Go with Freetrickstips.com.

    And my serious request is register domains soon, without further delay!

    I would buy both, use the hyphonated one as a redirect to freetipstricks.com also buy .co.uk/.net and .co domains.

    For me, to have a hyphen is much better to read. So I will choose the first one.
