    Help! .net or .org domain ?

    I am hoping to start an informative blog on a product(not brand) through which I hope to make affiliate sales.

    .com is taken but just parked with BS.
    .net and .org are available.

    Personally I like org domains more and tend to click it even if its listed lower than .net in searches. But that's just me.
    Would you suggest .net or .org ? Remember I hope to monetize it(mainly affiliates) Please suggest guys.


    Thanks!!!

    In both of those extensions any one is fine. I would go for " .net "

  4. Some people still associate .orgs with non profit organizations, you might have better sales by using the .net

  5. I'll go for .org if the .com version is taken

    no doubt .org is the better option. according to some pretty compelling recent statistical data that there is , according to google's own algorithm's. no difference whatsoever between .org and .com as far as ranking for a solid KWphrase domain.

    i just wish for the life of me i had the link to where i read this - but it definitely left an impression on me and i would sooner not comment than just make stuff up. so i am sorry about not being able to include a link here but i was reading about this exact question around a week or so ago while i had about 11 windows open in the AM hours with a head full of pharmaceuticals (legally prescribed of course).

    .net is on the decline... still lots of opportunity to grab rank with kwphrase.org if you search godaddy's bulk domain tool along with a quick save as .txt from google's keyword tool external.

    you would be surprised how many high traffic .org domains are actually available for hand-reg. and i swear i just read and saw somewhere that over the past 10 years there is zero statistical variance in ranking from .com to .org whereas .net can actually hurt you by some number like (i wanna say 7-10% lower overall organic rank) if you were to put the same site on a .net vs. .org or .com

    now i'm not an actor, but i play one on tv so you may want to do a little more digging but i feel confident that most of what i just wrote is dead accurate... i've never been on tv

    .org is not very good for a business site how other members said (to make sales), or personal sites (1 man organization?), stop thinking only from the Google SEO point of view, it's only an algorithm and this algorithm can change anytime. Just imagine ccn.org, skynews.org, honda.org , mcdonalds.org, does this look professional for a business? .org domains are good only for some sites.

    why something must be good for something ? can't it work out for both ? today, search engine is power till some of the user don't even remember the domain name ...

    org must be organization ? cctld must be for the country only ?

    From my point of view, yes .org domains are made for organizations in the first place, .de domains for german sites, .ru for russian sites, people make these associations.

    For example penisenlargement.eco sounds spammy to me, or unprofessional, radiotvshop.org , buyclothes.org, cheapshoes.org

    it is depends on your activity

    For which purpose you are making your website , it is mostly important in deciding TLD (TOP LEVEL DOMAIN ).

    If you want to make commercial website .com domain is the best.
    If you want to make charity or non -profit making organisation website .org is the best.
    If you unable to get .com domain and making any commercial website .net is better.
