    Hi,

    With so many TLD's out there, is there anyway we can rank them from best to worst in terms of SEO?

    obviously...

    1. .com
    2. org or net...
    3. whatever... so on and so forth?

    Thanks!

    Thats not what he is asking.

    But i have noticed seeing as im from the UK, that .ORG's seem to do better in the UK than .com's for same keyphrases! So maybe if you want a wider audience go with .orgs

    As you just stated it is fully dependent on location. On a world scale I would rank it the following way.

    .com
    .net
    .org

    then you will get into the more specific areas like country TLD's and the likes.

    However I think the ranking would be .com, .net, .org as stated.

    I agree...

    .com
    .net
    .org

    I don't normally use anything but .com.....
    unless the domain is really good and it happens to be a .net

    .com > .org > .net > rest are shit unless you're in the specific country (ex. .ru will rank as well as .com in russia, .co.uk will rank as well as .com in UK, .fr will rank as well as .com in france, etc)

    Use .com because it has a "mental impact" on people. They see this kinds of domains as trustable and easy to remember.
    But strictly in terms of SEO I don't see why a .net or .org domain were inferior. As long as you build it accordingly I don't think it will be a problem.
