how well would a premium .info rank

by NewbiesDiary 10 replies
I'm able to get a premium single keyword with a .info - now yes I know this isn't anywhere near as good as a .com and no it's not technically "premium".

So my question... is better to get a 'premium' single word .info or a keyword phrase .com?

Obviously it depends on what you do with it and how you promote it etc etc - am I answering my own question here?? hahaha

    I am a domain collector. I personally have 180 domains registered and I never saw anything good come from my .info domains. Google has always loved keyword rich domains that are .coms. I would say that your keyword phrase .com domain is your best bet...but that's me.

    Hope that helps.

      If you put the keyword "page rank checker" (with quotes) into Google, a Page Rank 7 PR checking tool that is on a .info domain comes up first out of 1.1 million.

      Without quotes, it comes up number one out of 50.6 million.

    From what I've learned, Google/SEs in general couldn't care less about the TLD. I've heard of that theory being debunked several times. (That's what you meant by "rank" right?)

    But still, I'd bet the keyword-phrase dot com would do better, but that all depends on what the premium word if you're trying to rank for the phrase if both were promoted/optimized properly (i.e., howtoloseweight.com & weightloss.info)

    If you meant something in the domaining world, the .com would do better unless the .info was a super-hot word (even then, it'd depend... "fire" wouldn't count like "movies" would).

    I've had a .info rank in the top 5 for it's primary keyword and it was a popular keyword as well, so it is possible. But in most peoples eyes the.com will always be king.

    As .infos go for about a buck why don't you just get both?

      i got the last remaining TLD that was available - its one of those words that no-one knows how to spell LOL and I got the most common misspelling - single word - searched around 135,000 times/mth according to the big G

    I have a .info with my name at the beginning rank top 3 with roughly 50 million results for nearly 2 years.

    I get approx 200 uniques a day.

    This .info works fine.

    There in no reason why you can't rank as well with a .info as you would with any other domain extension.. fact

    I think a lot of people are getting .info domains since godaddy is offering them for .99 , and you get free private registration on 5 or more domains .. It's cheaper to get 4 .info domains and one .com.

    I have developed a few sites with them and they rank perfectly fine, just follow basic SEO practices and you get natural traffic just like anything.. The only advantage is perception, which I think is changing.. people are getting used to diff domains
