So i'm just curious, does anyone know if google penalises against using a free domain name (co.cc) rather than a .com and the likes domain

    IMHO, they would be much harder to rank. I always stick with .com, .org, and then .net. I have had success with .co - but without an additional extension; it's just that they cost more to purchase.

    Ya, Top 3 are .com , .net and .org. stick with them as I think you'll have an easier time ranking. Plus my personal opinion is I like to see .coms. That being said if you work hard enough and have the right niche. You can rank any site.

    They don't exactly penalize you, but they will give you a rough time with it. Its totally worth spending for a domain imo .

    Guess you haven't heard.

    Google Takes Down Over 11 Million CO.CC Sites

    They're history as far as Google is concerned

    Thanks for the heads up, i'm surprised this one of mine is still up, so far I have only been able to use free domains so I guess I should look into changing soon, it probably explains why my rankings are so low despite getting traffic, cheers guys for the input.

      Your site has been delisted too. In order to find out if a site is in Google, you go to Google and type in site:golf-info.co.cc

      I did that and got this
      Your search - site:golf-info.co.cc - did not match any documents

    LOl i know it has never been listed as I always got the same result from day 1, I seem to be doing something very wrong even after all the ebooks, video tutorials and software that does not work and I have to get a refund, is there anywhere I can get some no fluff, no bs inside info
