Why did not docxconverter.com show up when I type docx converter in google? The closest match is www.docx-converter.com.

My question 1: What are the reasons for www.docxconverter.com not showing up?

My question 2: Which among the domain www.docxconverter.com and www.docx-converter.com is friendly with keyword phrase docx converter, and why?

1) docxconverter.com is not indexed by Google
2) content is more important than the domain name for more information you can check http://webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/3548/how-important-is-the-domain-name-for-seo

Could you imagine if google didn't ignore parked and squatted sites? Oh the SEO horror! – bpeterson76 Oct 8 '10 at 16:13
  1. There is no real website at docxconverter.com, it's just a domain-squatting page and has zero value. That same content is on literally thousands, maybe millions of pages. docx-converter.com on the other hand is a real site with content.

  2. Both are equal as far as I know (though there is a tiny chance non-hyphen will rank better). However, for users it's best to avoid hyphens in domain names, because they are easier to remember and dictate to others.
