    I understand its not visually as appealing as a dot com or dot net... but does it rank the same? With everything else equal?

    Also... is it like a free wordpress ... where it has .wordpress.com?

    It appears as .tk but if it gets decent traffic .tk will take it away from you and put their parked adverts on it. Its a complete scam.

    Given that people even avoid .info-s because they don't rank well enough I think you can guess the answer.

    Google once said that .co domains would be as good as the best of them (.com .net .org) but how many .co-s have you seen on the serps?

    I'd stick to the classic .net and .com, I even avoid .org-s. This is arguable, but .tk is definitely going to start at a disadvantage.

    I've used .tk-s to 301 to my money site when I was cheap though :D

    but why... I'm probably not gonna use it because they can take away the site... and make money off of my work... but the question is why does it not rank? Is it just because they are not com/net?

    Like is it a legit disadvantage via code.... or is it because people dont like the LOOK of TK... or is it because people think it doesnt rank... so they dont use it... thats why its not in the ranks?
