    Hello,

    What do you think about the value of a geo domain that has a hyphen in it. I am interested in your opinion regarding city or country names with a [space] in them (like for ex. San Francisco or South Africa). Would a domain that replaces that [space] with a hyphen have some considerable value?
    Like: san-francisco.com or south-africa.com? (these are only examples)

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, the two names you are mentioning should be valuable imo.
    But at the same time it's obvious that United-States.com holds more value than Sierra-Leone.com.

    I guess it all depends on what name it is and how popular the place is.

    San-Francisco.com is 10-20% value of SanFrancisco.com

    IMO with hundreds of new extensions and exact match domains no longer getting a ranking boost by Google,, hyphenated domains are worth less than 1% of their non-hyphenated counterparts. A major city geo .COM like New York, Los Angeles, Fort Lauderdale, San Antonio, San Diego, etc are perhaps seven figure names. Personally I would not even backorder the hyphenated version. But there might be a developer out there willing to pay enough for it that it would be worth doing so.

    Had a long list of major players and some of the hyphenated GEO domains they own.

    Some examples:
    Jersey-City.com, Fort-Myers.com (Scott Day)
    Lake-Placid.com, Winter-Haven.com (Castillo Bros.)

    It's a roll of the dice. Depends on the actual name and the end users options.

    THERAPIST Is a perfect example where a hyphen in between the e and r make a big difference.

    With regards to geodomains I once had Dracut-MA.com LowellMass.com LowellMA.com Lowell-MA.com sold some of those.

    Had so many (the most Massachusetts geodomains) at one point maybe still hold the record.

    Pures are the best. Default direct organic natural traffic. With no advertising and or marketing you will get eyeballs.
