    I'm thinking about registering a .CC domain, I don't have any experience with that TLD and I'm curious as to how they will rank in Google?

    My guess is that it won't really matter as long as the content is good and SEO is done properly? Right?

    What are your thoughts on .CC TLDs ? Worth it? :confused:

    Thanks,

    .CC is for a particular geographical area [cocos island or something.]]
    Like .us and .in.
    So it would b really good for local optimization in that area, but I doubt it will get ranked in google.com

    Hmm, what makes you think it won't rank in Google? Because I've seen some strange TLDs rank in the top 10 on Google.

    I'm thinking that if I use the exact keyword in the domain, do some proper on-page, off-page SEO it will rank in the top 10.

    I would love to hear from any .CC owners...

    Thanks for the input satyawrat!

    instead of asking, go and try it, if you believe .cc will rank then do it test it yourself and learn from it

    I don't think it will do well... it is the top level domain for an Australian territory, as mentioned above.

    Would you buy a uk domain to rank in the U.S.? Probably not. It COULD rank... but it sure would be the exception and not the rule.

    Certainly try it... but I think you will be disappointed. Good Luck and let us know...

    Good point, the reason I'm asking is because I'd like to get an idea of what I'm getting myself into.

    Well look at that, and that's with the subdomain service too. Hmm...will have to look into this some more in the morning.

    Google "cd covers" ...that's what sparked my interest, so I decided to pick some brains :)

    Thanks!

    A couple of years ago called Loser.cc, I didn't do any SEO, I barely even mentioned the word loser on the page. I still managed to get on page 3 for the term "Loser" so there's as much potential there as any other TLD
