    I recently bought a dot info with a certain keyword (buying keyword). I worked really hard. I did press releases, directory submissions, blog commenting, and social bookmarking. I don't see any trace for the website in google at all :S

    Can someone tell me what is happening ?

    How long has it been? I have a lot of .info domains, and I've been ranking them without much difficulty. You may just need to give it a bit more time.

    do you use the google webmaster tools? then you can see if any of the pages are indexed or not?

    did you use something else like market samurai to see if your in the first 1000?

    I have plenty of .info ranking like any .com would

    I've had pretty good luck with most of my .info's. But I have to admit, after a couple months there are a couple I can't get g@ogle to put into the top 1000, no matter what I do. What's really weird is that sometimes the same site will have a page that will rank first page for a clickbank product, but won't rank in the top one thousand for what should be a relatively easy main keyword. WTF?

    Wow, give it some time. Even a .com won't index in a day. Digg it, tweet it. (twitter is real time now, digg gets crawled 3-4 times a day - at least).

    im pretty sure that it does not matter.. and that it will rank just fine.. but might be a little harder because its not as popular..

    lol. are you even indexed?

    as i posted before google prefers geo domains..

    but second come all general domains. including .com, .org, .net and .info.

    for seo it doesn`t matter.. its just the humans who value a .info lower..

    its asociated with spam a lot, and anyone who wants to build a longterm site and wants to brand it uses a .com.
    just because of the fact that if people hear a url, the automaticly asociate it with .com.

    when people try to find your website again for a second visit, they always try the .com version first, its just programmed into their brain..

    people may remember the domain, but they don`t remember the extension... it automaticly turns .com in their mind. because thats the standard...

    which actually is quite remarkable..
    the rest of the world associate their country extension to a domain first.. in my case .nl.. but US people associate webadresses with .com first.. while .US is the TLD for the USA..

    and if you want to rank your site in the USA serps, the .US tld actually is your best option because its geo targeted, and ranked better by google..
    but nobody seems to notice that and blindly take .com everytime.
    ok, a .com will rank worldwide, and a .us wont. but most marketers aim for us only anyway and asian traffic is useless to them. so why bother with a generic domain like .com or .org..

    .info is just as good as .com for ranking.
    but a geo targeted domain is even better.

    I have heard mixed reviews about .info but from my own personal experience they suck big fat gorilla dick. As for .us domain they are even worse. They are the only geo targeted domain that actually hurts you in the serps. I have read many articles about .us domain and the verdict has been the same with most. Although I have never personally used one but most will agree that what i say is true. Plus how many .us domain do you ever see popping up #1 on the big G.

    .info are so cheap that is what i love about them but for ranking a .com is so much better vut .info can also rank if you promote it.

    I had a hard time in the past with .info that were "selling" something...
    Not sure if this is a good reason though...

    I think mine got indexed to Google (only homepage), so yeah hard work pays off. However, i got two VERY brandable dot coms and i am willing to get them to rank #1 or #2

    I don't know about anyone else on this forum, but when I see .info it kind of makes me skeptical.

    OK, stop bitching on .info's...

    go to
    Code:
    http://google.com/ncr
    (ncr is "No Country Redirection", that means you will use google USA)
    and search for "hotfile movies"(with or without the "") and look at the first place...
    and this isn't an easy keyword to rank for.
