    I want to rank for one keyword, its really competitive but That doesnt holds me back.
    I registered a .biz domain it was keywordphrase.biz (exact match)
    The .com/.net/.org even with dashes was taken but only this domain was aviable - i heard that google doesnt penalizes domains based on their extensions but still..

    So what u think
    Could keywordphrase.biz
    would rank better then keywordphrase5.com or not? If all the other things are exact same???
    Oh yeah the keyword itself is about business as well so .biz looks maybe even better- but who knows..

    So Anyone can tell me from experience If .biz domain can rank as good as com/net/org ?

    Thx!

    Ok well looks like I just wasted $7 ..
    Did a small research myself and people say that they can rank really good with .biz at yahoo and msn but it just doesnt ranks at google

    Also .biz domains are reserved exclusively for actual businesses that are local in their area, and not just websites used for commercial properties, they have to market an actual brick and mortar business. Who knows if anyone will ever do anything about this, but there is a disclaimer when you buy these types of domains.

    That is not true.. You can rank well in G with a .biz as well.. I have a few sites with .biz domains that rank quite well..
