    Help me choose a friendly SEO company url.

    Hi everyone, I'm starting a new company called Advanced HTPC. However, I still have not decided which url to go with:

    1) www.ahtpc.com
    2) www.advancedhtpc.com

    Which do you think would be the better as far as SEO goes?
    Which one would you go with?

    Thanks guys

    Do you want the SE to point to your site if the user uses the keywords as Advanced HTPC, if that is the case the best URL would be www.advanced-htpc.com. If that is not the case either of your URLs would work the same in SEO point of view, but I would prefer www.advancedhtpc.com (easier to remember than ahtpc.com)
    This is just my opinion.

    Get all three. Ahtpc.com for branding, advancedhtpc.com to catch typos, and advanced-htpc.com as the one that the other two 301 to, for the SE's.

    I'm going to be selling HTPC's, so the word 'HTPC' will be the most important. Does google treats advanced-htpc better than advancedhtpc? I think as far as the keyword HTPC goes...my site will never be on the top 10 list in google (mainly because I will be selling instead of providing a plethora of information on HTPC's etc...). So maybe I should think of which ever is easier to type?

    I've also been thinking about the logo and emails etc...

    myemail@advancedhtpc.com
    myemail@ahtpc.com
    myemail@advanced-htpc.com

    Why is something so small so hard to figure out!

    its just seperates the keywords.

    some sites, like press release sites, use the URL as the link text. if the words are separated by a - then those would be keyword rich links.
