.net vs .org
« on: 05-08-2010, 05:21:50 »
ok guys a long debated issue, but if you can't get the .com (which obviously is the best) which domain extension does one go for ? .net or .org.

My experience has shown that both are well respected by google for SEO purposes and people do like them but which is really better. Also would you consider other TLD's over the above. e.g. maybe a .co.uk or .info is better ?

What's your views on these... Oh and don't forget the hold hyphenated .com domain , is that better than a non hyphenated .org or .net ??  ;)

.org are in front of everything, but as long as you don’t post any comercial links.

Matt said .org has some “magic” on it.

anyway, i would go for the usual .mycountrycode

if you can get your country code then definitely get it. it really depends on the nature of your site when considering other gTLD's, but the only real alternative to a .com is a .co

hI,
In my point of view .org is best because after.com you can get more traffic for .org domains.I am runing a E-Commerce website with .org extenstion from the site www.XnYnZ.com . I am getting more traffic for my website.So If you can't get .com extension better you can get .org extensions.. :) :)

it is right that .com is best domain

.org and .net both are okay but .org is better because it is much used by people and people can remember it easily.

other top level domains like .co.uk and .info both the good. .co.uk is specific to country whereas .info can be used worldwide, so .info is better than .co.uk


If i cannot obtain .com i use both .net and .org.

i think for seo a website you should buy the .net domain because i help in ranking your website rather .org website are organizations which do not
get so much ranking in compare to .net and .com which are also helpful  for publishing google ads .

so please buy an .net or .com domain
