    Please help me. I have to start a new site that is based on US. So i have a confusion that any .us domain name is helpful to attract more US visitors ? . I will do some seo too.


    1. Can i prefer a .us domain for this
    2. Or just .com

    I need to target US visitors. So .us domain is useful for that or not ? please suggest me friends.

    In the web master tool... select the target country as US and you are good to go with a .us domain also...

    If the .com it's available just go for it, if it's not go for .us.

    If your main focus of traffic is organic searches from Google then use whatever you want .com or .us or .net, both have same value and your efforts on site for content/design/backlinks will make the difference.

    Thanks

    .coms are better. Hence, their higher price.
