Default What's your goal?

It's my understanding that Google, which drives Yahoo & many other search engines, reads dashes as spaces. So the words in the URL actually get read and maybe these are key words you want your potential reader to key on, while the URL without the dashes is just read as a long list of indistinguishable letters.

You've got to ask yourself how many people are going to type in the URL. I know I seldom do. Mostly it's just "click" or “paste” and I think I'm your average user (Except I'm reading your post, so I guess I'm not). I'd suggest using www.hall-of-fame-tours.com or any URL with dashes that actually tell the story or makes your point.

Hope this helps.

John Henry
