  • I'm still amazed at why almost no websites use hyphen in the name? Especially sites that can be misunderstood.

    I mean, if I wanted to have a site about very special owls, I know I wouldn't be able to get "SuperbOwl.com"... but I could certainly see "Superb-Owl.com". (Heh, taken, of course, by a domain squatter.)

    Another example of misinterpreted names: see my thread on google groups [google.com] about "remembers the lens", and what it really means. {grin}

    • Hyphens are sometimes popular among search engine spammers. The reason must be that they want to put as many keywords as possible in the domain name, in the hope that the search engine will give them great weight. An example would be www.sportfishing-nassau-bahamas-paradise-island-fishing-charters.com .

      There are many other examples that shouldn't be discussed in polite company. ;-)
