will there be a difference in SEO, if i use .net instead of com and perform SEO on my site?
I don't think so, tlds hardly matter though avoiding the cheaper ones does indeed prove to rank quicker.
I'd suggest none at all, people choose .com as a personal preference and as it's the most recognised TLD, used by big businesses etc too.
I have .org and .net domains outranking EMD with the .com below mine in SERPS.
Google will continue to rank the most relevant results regardless of the domain name and extension.
.com may seem more legit, although this is changing
Might still be easier to get spontaneous links to a .com
But people are quickly getting used to gtld's like .taxi and .site
thank you for your insight
Generic TLDs like .com .org .info etc each of them are to mean different types. Like .com for commercial .org for organization. But people find it .com domains are way more brandable than other domains so they prefer this over other TLDs. Although it has 0 effect on SEO, unless they are ccTLDs.
You can use and rank any domain tld you like. I think just the length of the name before the tld helps and how specific the name is.
No difference really but I did make a blog with a .blog domain and it does appear that the new extensions count as keywords in searches.
So, say you have a EMD with a .blog extension, it's very easy to rank if people type 'emd blog' into google, if it's a topic people look for blogs on.
I'm sure the other extensions have similar benefits.
.com is the best . but do not effect on SEO
Separate names with a comma.
