    I don't personally have any experience with .biz sites, but I have also seen that most people recommend .com .net & .org.

    biz is a generic tld so it should rank like com/net/org
    IMO keyword.biz is better that keywordPlusSomeDumbOtherWords.com

    I'd stay away from biz. I have one ranking ok in yahoo but nowhere to be found in Bing & Google. Just add something to the end of the .com site you want and you'll sleep better. ;)

    I would not use a .biz domain but would rather add a word on the end of the chosen domain for instance yourdomain.com would become yourdomainhome.com or yourdomainreview.com or something like that.

    another situation where nobody knows for some basically, I'd avoid it and go for keyword in your .com. But as stated, this is opinion.

    There is absolutely no difference what TLD you use as far as SEO is concerned. Of course .coms are better simply because people typing it in to return to your site will almost always think its a .com.

    In reality though the search engines will not treat a .biz, or .info, any different than a .com.
