    Rookie question right, but there's so many different opinions on this question. Anyone here can advise?

    Is "weight-loss" (with hyphen) a different keyword than "weight loss" (without hyphen) in google search?

    For example, could I outrank a PR4 site that was using "weight-loss" and I'm trying to rank for the keyword "weight loss"??

    search engines treat hyphenated words the same as if they were not hyphenated. no edge in my opinion

    G doesn't "see" punctuation like a hyphen is what I was told. So, like @operationoffers said - gives you no edge, either way.

    Thanks @operationoffers and @azgold. My keyword tools agree with your advice. I was looking for some kind of advantage for longtail kw's (5 words and longer)
