Hyphen vs. Underscore - There IS a difference!
I was hoping that v3.0 (or 3.01) would include the option to use the hyphen to separate keywords in filenames and directories, as opposed to the underscore (the default). A toggle to switch from one to the other would've been a really nice new feature! I might need someone to create a custom script to do this...

Why?

Because Google treats them differently! Some feel there is no difference at all, but some of us know better. Even GoogleGuy (authorized Google deep throat) has now admitted as much publicly. Sadly, some at GT remain unaware of this important fact.

Here's a link to results of a test on this. I bet more tests will yield same results.

The above page includes a quote from GoogleGuy (a secret insider at Google).

What do YOU think? I'm curious... Using hyphens could really help with SEO! I hope this option (toggle?) will be added into the program in the not-too-distant future.

Thanks for your feedback.
