"Don’t Get a Domain That Doesn’t Match Your Business or Industry"

Related to domain name mistakes, I've heard several webmasters recommend against using dashes (and other symbols, generally). Aside from becoming a potential spelling mistake (visitors may forget to add the dash to the domain, thus decreasing website traffic), they said it's also bad for SEO.
