If I had a domain: youbuycars.com or you-buy-cars.com, which one would rank higher and read better by Search Engines??

I am told the you-buy-cars.com since it separates the words for the Search Engine. But then an SEO company says it does not matter.

Please help I am confused.

It only makes a difference if the keyphrase you are targetting is available as an exact match in the domain and is low competition.

so if your're target keyphrase was "cheap cars" and "cheapcars.com" was available, then as long as the competing sites is less than 50,000 it would rank very quickly.

Other than that it makes no difference whatsoever. (and hyphens are harder for the reader than hyphen-less)
