GoDaddy has a sale on their .co extension - Is this worth it?

5 replies
Looks like GoDaddy slashed their price on the .co extension from $29.99 to $11.99.

They'll be advertising this heavily during the Superbowl and they'll introduce the new "Godaddy.co girl".

I've been looking to find some decent domains but haven't found anything yet.

I just wonder if it's even worth it. Do they get ranked in the search engines like they do with .com, .net, .org?

I doubt it very much. Maybe I'll just find one that's short and memorable.

After today, most of them will be snatched up

We'll see...

    MCDavies,
    Actually, if you type in ".co domains" at Google, GoDaddy is running a PPC campaign right now and offering them for $7.49 for the first year...as a super bowl promotion.

    That will shave a few more bucks off.

    All the best,

    Actually, I have to disagree with you here. If your experience is different, I'd be interested to hear, but I've heard the same said for .info domains, etc., which just isn't true. The fact is that Google isn't looking at the tld extension, but the words in the domain name. So, if you did SEO on a site with the domain of cheapcarinsuance.co, you would get the same results as if you put the same amount of work into the .com equivalent.

      I'll try to go after some low competition and highly searched keywords and see if this is true.

      I also thought about getting some domains for local businesses and build them up.

      We're about a half an hour before the kickoff.

      Let's go Packers!!
