.org and .us domains?

by 3 comments
I found a one word domain that gets a very good number of searches and has low competition. The .com and .net are taken but the .org and .us are not.

Any opinions on .org and .us as far as SEO goes?

    I would not be using whois privacy on it.

    It makes zero difference to the SEs. Google played around a little with .infos due to their popularity among spammers (they are the cheapest to register) but for the most part the TLD makes no difference in the eyes of a search engine. .edus and .gov tend to get some favour, but you can't go out and register either, of course.


    You got that backwards -- you can't get WHOIS privacy on .us -- no problem getting it for .org

    If you grew up and went to public school in North America, you know that the school system here is far from perfect. Kids have all different experiences, but one common thread is that everybody learns how to be an employee and not a manager. School isn’t just designed to teach you math, science and English, there are also lessons contained in the actual structure of school itself. When you hear the bell and it directs you to class, you’re learning to follow directions in a very Pavlovian fashion. You know that you can’t get caught in the hallways during class time, so you respond to the bell in order to avoid punishment. When you go into the classroom and sit in your spot in the row of desks and you know you’re not permitted to talk to other students and that the teacher has control of the class, you’re learning that your place in society is to quietly submit to authority.

    Just a quick question for you internet marketing gurus, or for those of you who have a bit of experience in marketing your own businesses. Which social media platform drives the most traffic to your website? Im obviously going to invest a bit of time and money in advertising my business through each of the main platforms, facebook, twitter, instagram etc. I was just wondering, more out of interest than anything (because as I said, I intend to utilize each platform to its max for my business) which of these social media platforms is responsible for the highest amount of visitors to your website?

    I was reflecting on some of the things I have been working on over the past few months since I have been doing IM full time and I thought it's been a massive learning curve but I am making some progress. I've done a few little things that have helped keep me focused now that I don't have the physical motivation of a boss and a workplace surrounding me to crack the whip so to speak when I get a little lost and unmotivated during my work day.

    Hey guys - I have a question that I've been thinking about a fair amount and wanted to discuss with all of you. SEO is one of the main areas of focus for internet marketing - there are a lot of people building websites and competing for search engine traffic. There is so much information out there about search engine optimization and you can virtually get lost for days trying to figure out what the best way is to promote your website or the product that you're selling through search engine rankings.
