    .net would be my first choice over .org

    Just my personal preference, (and netiquette) but when I go to a .org site and it's not really an "organization", and turns out to be a "commercial" type site, I tend to click my back button real quick.

    However, what do you mean by "report site"? Will you be selling products/linking to affiliate offers/making money in any way?

      A single landing page that gives away a nice little report in exchange for an email. nothing special

      Then I'll start working the list with affiliate offers after it gets to a nice size. But the site itself will be a simple giveaway. And the report is actually pretty well written.

      atleast that's the plan....

      .org addresses just seem to imply something that .nets and .coms dont

    Recently listed to an audio by Willie Crawford and Richard Legg, and they both have had great SEO ranking success with .com and .org domains. They recommend those two over .net.

      Agreed with this as I never mess with .net sites...my .com and .org work really well though...I have some .orgs beating my .coms even!

    Once again, just personal preference here, I like freexxxxxreport.com

    reminds me of the free credit report .com commercials... not sure if you would get into any trademark/copyright issues though...

    I find a better SEO success with .org in all my sites.
    So I usually choose .org. I can't explain why but in my experience with both I find a better ranking with .org.

    I agree with Jared I will do a .net over a .org anyday ... Matter fact when I go register domain names I get the .com and .net both... Usually the .net can be used for a related site....

    I do not understand why many do not get this but I have posted this same thing over and over... Trust me it works wonders. So here goes another $1,000 in free information for you. This can work for anybody, any site, any niche, and etc.

    When you register a domain name, get the .com and .net both.

    Now build your .com website, whatever is may be, and do all the normal stuff...

    * Build Backlinks
    * Write Articles
    * Post On Web 2.0 Properties
    * Submit To Directories
    * Post On Your Social Network Profiles
    * Create a Squidoo Lens and Hubpage
    * Submit Your Rss Feeds
    * And etc.

    Now on your .net setup a server for it (you should have dedicated or resellers) and install a related blog. On this blog you are not going to advertise NOTHING this is a pure information blog.

    What you are going to do is this:

    * Write blog post related to your site, link this blog post to your main .com
    * Create a Opt-In Form (just incase)
    * Add all the normal SEO as you would on other blogs
    - All-In-One-SEO-Plugin
    - Set your post urls to cats/date instead of id numbers
    * Block comments or not, your choice
    * Submit your rss feeds
    * Bookmark each and every post
    * Ping each and every post
    * Add new content every few days or so
    * Some blog post you can link to your articles
    * You could also install a article widget (ArticlesBase.com) has one

    What is going to happen here is your .net is going to feed your .com and your articles both. Your articles are going to feed your .com. The backlinks and rss feeds will both feed your .com and .net. By you having the .net and .com it is helping protect and brand yourself both at the same time..

    You would be surprised how many people type in the .net of a domain name just to see what is there... I bet many of you have done the same.

    This will increase your .com a great deal in the search engines and especially if your domain name is the same as the keywords you are targeting.

    So I really hate to disagree with some top marketers but a .net can be used for very powerful things just as sub-domain names can.

    I find this amazing funny ....

    .net is the 2nd most popular, it is a well known fact that people visit the .net after they see the .com. There was actually a study done on this but I can not remember the link. The study proved that approx 60% of the people that see .com also will visit the .net

    .org - This is known as a not-for-profit domain name and consumers are conditioned to know this. Many times if a .org contains some type of make money consumer are just like jared posted above, they run!

    Again sorry to disagree with those top marketers... They "may" be able to get a good listing with a .org but fact is you can do that with any domain name no matter what the ext.
