    I am looking to buy a new domain name. The only EMD available is .ASIA. I want to rank in Australia. I actually want to buy a .com.au domain but its very difficult if your not in Aus.

    Back to .ASIA's, I have never ranked one of these before. To be honest I don't think I have even seen one in the SERPS before!

    When I looked on wikipedia it said they are designed for Asian and Australian businesses, which sounds promising.

    Anyone had any experience of .ASIA's???

    Cheers

    I don't think you should buy a .ASIA if you really want to rank it in Australia. It would be difficult, and after Googl's EMD update, I don't think it would be easy, EMD still rank, but they are kinda loosing that advantage of being EMD. DOn't go for .ASIA
    You can find some info about EMD update here-

    I woudn't recommend you picking up .asia EMD, since EMD are being hurt nowadays. Try to go wit EMD+{x,1,2,s} at australian com.ua domain name

    There's 1,1 million of them in Google - not a whole lot :p

    But it's pretty much just a vanity domain with no real purpose. And com.au is much better for Australia, albeit might be a bit tricky to get, as OP said.
