    Will one or the other get more attention from google, or does it not really matter?

    I think they both rank equally well in Google. The .com domain is better for branding though.

    clever idea!

    if it is available then go to .com if not .net has the same power...

    For ranking purposes between .com and .net it doesn't really matter enough to make a difference.

    The power of domain names in google does not matter all that much.

    However for resale value follow this guide.
    .com > .net > .org > other TLD
    In some cases this is varied, for example is you have a hack (drivesafe.ly for instance) they can become much more valuable than any others.
    However, for the money spent, hit the .com then the .net. If they are both available, take both, as you may get ghosters on the net and org TLDs.

    Either or is fine. But IMHO, go for the .com if you can.

    Thanks for the quick responses, I think I will be going with the .com!

    In my experience the .COM carries more weight across the board, especially with Bing.

    I think they have thesame value with google. But most people are used to type .com. I think you need to buy both if you have chance.

    naturally .com is best...
    has anyone seen a .net rank over a .com for first result?
