    Eh, if it's for a brand, I would say to get the .com version. For everything else, I suppose it doesn't matter.

    .com is always best for branding however you can rank anything

    Look, you can rank any domain, but Google will always like .com more than any other domain extension and I would always take some domain name with separator like your-domain.com rather than .co .xyz or any other extension.

    And it look professional after all

    .com, .org, .net or don't bother.

    Separators will kill you almost as much as one of these shit TLD's.

    Always go for the .com.

    An average users will feel more confident when browsing a .com domain simply because it is so widely used.

    But if it isn't available, there isn't much you can do.

    I have never got a .co domain but some people seem to use them with no problem, I would personally go with the .com and take out the guess work all together.

    It really depends on what traffic source you are going to. If you are using social media, I think .com/.net/.org are much trustworthy because most people are familiar with that domains. But if you are planning to get your traffic from search engine, any domain extension are good.
