    I just wanted to know if using the different domain extensions ( .online,.vegas etc) have any effect on rankings or SEO? Anyone have any experience in this matter? Thanks for any help.

    From what I've read, a generic top-level domain name (.com, .net, .org) is better for SEO. I don't know to what extent it affects it however.

    It's about trust. Will people link to a site called example.vegas? If so, then it's good for SEO.

    yea it is all about length of domain and trust. Those top levels have not even been out that long so you are starting from scratch.

    I have literally seen .rocks domain, .song domain and many different domain ext ranked better than .com,.net or .org. However, .com is always a first choice for everyone. If you having problem finding .com in your niche, you can go for different ext.
