Dot Info if Dot Com is taken?

by 7 comments
Shoot straight..

I'm looking at a domain name, but the .com version is taken. However, the .info TDL is still open.

Can the .info work? I'm wanting to move from blogger to a WP blog, as my blog is starting to pick up steam. (Than, all I've gotta do is figure out how to use WordPress.)

    I second what Brian said, plus you will lose a significant amount of traffic to whoever owns the .com version. Whenever you buy a business domain that you will spend time and money on to promote, ALWAYS make it a .com. Why lose 30% or more of your prospects?

    .info domains have a bad reputation. Always go with a .com .net or .org in that order. You will like wordpress it is easy to get rollling with it.

    you will be donating your brand to the .com site, remember:

    ... if you build it they will com...

    Only use .com

    Hi I've decided that maybe I should give up on selling my infographic templates product or ebook before I've even had a chance to start. I can't seem to find an affiliate marketer who can help make the launch a success. I'm willing to give 70% commission. I'm down on my last dime. I really don't know what to do. Does anyone know or are an affiliate marketer that could help or guide me? Any advice is appreciated.

    In case you have been wondering, yes, this is a true story. And yes, this has been one of the most pointless discussions I had to make in my life. Could I have avoided it in the first place? I leave you to be the judge. As a content writer, you are a lone wolf or a lone ranger, whichever you prefer. I do my job. One on one with the client. That's it. Yet, every now and then, I have to become a part of some team, more or less voluntarily. In most of the cases, I have to work with designers, animators, and similar. Not such a big deal, you may say. We all play in the same team. We want to get over with our jobs, get paid, and move on. It makes sense.

    I want to be a vendor on clickbank, I am a software developer and I want to release a product for clickbank. But I have no any project ideas, what would you suggest for me? I mainly know C# and develop bots or internet marketing tools kind of projects. But I need to develop useful bots since CB has some strict rules, e.g they don't accept crawling/scraping tools etc.
