    Hello guys,

    good topic going here, figured I would ask a question.

    I own www.rates.cd

    If someone was to look up "cd rates" how will Google look at that in regards to my domain extenion, exact match and seo?

    Thanks guys

    I think that it will be zero bonus for the domain.

    Not sure, but have a look (UK in the extension appears bold) -
    Need some time to handle deferred joining date by three big IT companies.

    .com is most widely extension and i always try to get .com if not then i select .net or think anyother domain.

    If domain extension really matters then i believe .com ranks highest.

    If the search term is "silly putty", then Google will give a bonus to:

    • sillyputty.com
    • sillyputty.net
    • sillyputty.org

    But not to:

    • silly-putty.com
    • sillyputty.us
    • sillyputty.info
    • sillyputty.cc

    MSN has a similar exact match bonus, and my guess it that Yahoo does also.
    How about global domain extension juts like *.mx?

    as far as i know .com is on no. 1 according to seo for general sites. and if you are unable to find .com choice then you have to consider .net aswell.

    but if you wanna to make specific regional site then you have need to go with your local TLD.
    Exa. :: for india i will go with .in or .co.in tel domains.

    if you want to make education site then .edu is best choice

    for organization .org is best choice.

    finally, seo expert can do well seo with any TLD that dosent matter

    Will, are you sure on this? Ever did a test specifically to check whether there is any bonus or not?

    hmmm, only registered universities can obtain .edu domain.

    Before i had another opinion but now i think .com, .net and .org have the boost. Can be seen easily in SERPs. If you ask me why i will tell you, because .com, .net and .org have authority, are old, cost money, lot of money, there is only 1 domain.com, doesn't matter how many domain extensions will be released in the future.
