:burger2: Anyone else ?
The post may have seemed like I was just joking around, but I'm genuinely interested. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
I know that you have to own the .com to even get the country domain. Same works with all countries I've read.
but does it effect ranking?
It has been 4 months and I'm still wondering the same thing. I'm not trying to be obnoxious or disruptive here. This will be the last time I bump this. If I get no responses I will let this thread die.
Thanks or thanks anyway
Using a country TLD extension (for example .ca) will help your ranking in a particular region. I think using country TLD will negatively affect your ability to rank internationally.
Having a country-specific domain enables Google to return the search result to that certain country since they would think that your site is relevant to the users from that country. Having a TLD of .com, .net or.org or not that country specific has a better chance of ranking to territories.
