    anyone here have experience with .biz domains?
    are they harder to rank than .com .net .org domains?

    I am interested in an EMD, only .co and .biz is available. according to my experiences, .co is just as easy/hard to rank as .com .net .org but the reason i want to avoid the .co is that it's so damn expensive.

    but i dont know about .biz, it sounds a little spammy to me. does it take more effort/backlinks to rank a .biz?

    i would say choose another name because biz domains are harder to rank.

    .BIZ (Business) - This is a gTLD that is generally registered to classify their website as a business.
    If you're not a business I wouldn't bother, but if you are they are not that hard to rank.

    well having some .biz and not saw much difference

    also with http://vpswindows.biz i have good result without doing yet any seo (or mostly)
    Just people said why choose a .biz ... Corp website is .com so i think .biz is not bad for seo or such

    Yes, generally speaking they're harder to rank and a .Biz is not considered a TLD. I'd recommend going for a .Com, .Net or a .Org.

    i bought 30+ .biz domains when namecheap was running that special (over 3 accounts as the limit was 10 per account). I wouldn't have bought that many if they were going to give me problems ranking.

    I agree with Veyron. I tend to stay away from .biz. Get a .com, .net or .org.
