    A lot of people don't buy them because they are misled to believe that .biz, .info, etc., domains don't rank. But the fact is that they do rank.

    I have an exact match .biz domain that ranks #1 for its keyword, above the .com and .net emd. The site is less than half of the age of the other domains, has fewer backlinks and makes me about $20-$40 per day in ad earnings. It was extremely easy to rank, in fact, i ranked it almost by accident, because i did very little work with it and it is in a medium competition niche, related to health problems.

    So, my response to you would be to buy the domains and get to work.

    BIZ domains might rank, but in my opinion and many others it lacks the credibility that other TLD extensions have.

    I like others steer clear of BIZ domain names.

      Sounds like you have what I like to call the "calf syndrome". You read on a blog or something that they don't work and rather than forming your own opinion you decided to follow the herd.

      Why do they lack credibility? The .biz extension was initially created to serve as an alternative tld for businesses that could not get their .com business name. They aren't used and abused as frequently as most other tld's and I would be more than comfortable looking up information on a .biz website if it has what I was looking for.

      In fact, its probably quite the opposite of the credibility issue. When your "average" web searcher comes across a .biz extension they would most likely relate the domain to a credible business and click the link in the search results.

      Much for the same reason that I and many others have had luck with .info's in the past. When searchers see a .info domain, they think information which is what they are looking for. Most consumers do no know the myths or misconceptions of the various domain names. To them .info provides information, .biz is for businesses and so forth.

      You have to think like a consumer, not an internet marketer.

      Biz is a generic top-level domain (gTLD) in the Domain Name System of the Internet. It is intended for registration of domains to be used by businesses. The name is a phonetic spelling of the first syllable of business.
