Can a .org rank as highly as a .com?

    Hello,

    I read somewhere on this forum that .com ranks higher than .net and .org on google. Which seems very true when I search google to find the top ten results .com

    what are your thoughts on this?
    should I swap to a .com domain?

    It's just that there are more com domains, especially in our business. You'd probably lose more by changing it.

    Have you heard of wikipedia? ;)
    I guess they are .org

    The extension really doesn't matter especially between .com .net and .org
    The .info domain is getting slap but there is no official proof for this. The TLD really matters when you target a country. .co.uk can work better than .com in google UK, provided all the other factors are equal.

    I would have thought .org would get higher as its a organization domain.

    not true... .info is not as good as .com in the first few month because so many spammers use it i think...

    also .com .net .org are the best

    I agree. They all rank the same. But .com is preferable as it can get typein (when users enter keyword in address bar) traffic.

    Thanks for clarification on this... I had personally thought that .info didn't rank as well as others. Guess that this is a good thing for my spammy autoblogs

    Years ago a *.com TLD was better for DNS programming and propogation - but for the internet (seo) it really doesnt matter what type of domain you use.

    As long as you aren't using a ccTLD (.cc, .cn, .ws, .me etc) you should have no problems ranking. The problem with ccTLD's is that they easily rank in the home country search results, but not so easily in the US search results.
