I am in the process of developing a new site for my targeted keyword which is Construction Signs
Anyway, I ended up purchasing two domains:
Construction-Signs.com.au for $24.00
ConstructionSigns.com.au for $899.00
Now despite spending $899.00 for the later, I am actually thinking of going with the $24.00 option www.construction-signs.com.au for the following reasons.
1. construction-signs.com.au is easier to read and brand than constructionsigns.com.au
2. I often associate exact match domains with a dodgy, parked or redirected site, so by taking the hyphenated option, I feel it distances me somewhat from the exact match domains.
3. I thought it might look a bit more legit on Adwords
Am I mad for doing this? Have I just committed SEO Suicide, or will it have little impact?
