    The domain I want to buy isn't available from the other domains
    Does Google give "eu" the same value as the other domains? Or do I have to work much more on it, to make it worth the same?

    Also is it good to buy a eu? Is info better?

    Thanks!

    I disagree.

    I have found that .eu domains are a bit harder to rank.

    Yes, it's possible...but it is harder.

    If your site is in English than do yourself a favor: get a dot com.

    If the dot com is not available, get a dot org instead...or choose a variation of your keyword phrase on the dot com.

    .eu have low demand
    Their marketing is absent, the top sites using them not so popular compared with other TLDs, the overall usage not so good = don't choose them
    You will be better with a local ccTLD or a .com/.net/.org/.tv even the .co trend look better than .eu

    Mm.. So I should step out of the .eu and jump onto another ship before it sinks, eh?
    Doesn't sound good no more. All the .coms I want are taken. I'll look at the .co domains.

    If you are targeting people from EU yes .eu is a great extension. But if you want worldwide traffic or north american then go for com/org/net.

    I've seen some domains with .eu extension ranking very well on Google.com. So yeah, the .eu extension rank well if you optimize it properly.

    Haha, Thanks for the positive comments. What a relief! I thought my awesome keyword domain was useless there. Now time to get some content written and some SEO done on it.

    Thanks!
