    I know country TLDs give you a boost in local searches. Does .mobi give a boost in searches from mobile devices?

    You have a valid point. I never thought of this. Interested to know as well. Anyone experience any patterns regarding this one?

    Its not about people typing but about google ranking you higher for mobile searches.
    Im pretty sure Google likes .mobi for mobile ranking, cause they were one of the main sponsors of this project (check wikipedia)
