SEO now is a lot different now .. EMDs are not so efficient now .. SO you need to have a brandable keyword domain to get reputation on that niche .. I think the way i thought could be a solution ,, or some where near to the solution , NOW THAT .COM AND .NET are not of very big difference when it comes to SEO .. Only problem is .net domains could become a sub ordinate one when .com comes live .. But themeforest.net like sites comes to my mind to think otherwise .. We can go register domains with extension .net or .or with the brandable domains sold online . EXAMPLE : http://www.brandbucket.com/ These domains are too much in cost .. And they do not get sold as often .. within which we could rank better than .com domains .. THINK THIS WILL WORK .
