    Can't comment on the SEO benefit. But surely people will remember .coms.
    For example, if your domain is mydomain.net. If someone wants to go to your site after 10 days again, 7 out of 10 times people will type mydomain.com.

    Martinchillz,

    I suppose the general answer is no, it doesn?t matter. In terms of ranking a domain, these TLD?s are pretty much equal.

    That being said, there are some caveats to this statement. For instance if you have a country specific TLD, then it can be more difficult to rank it in countries that it does not apply to. For instance ranking a .AE (for United Arab Emirates) in the U.S. would be rather challenging based on the way that Google and other engines deliver search results to their users.

    Another thing is less related to the technical side of SEO and has more to do with user perception of TLD?s. For casual internet users, little else exists besides .com, .net, .org, or .edu. There are undoubtedly others that lay people are aware of like .gov however my point is that people tend to place more trust in the more common TLD?s. Especially those that are used by websites they commonly frequent.

    Sometimes a business will come up with a clever use for a particular TLD such as about.me?s website for personal branding. The .me TLD works great for them.

    Another thing you might hear around the web is that .edu?s, .orgs, .govs and other specialized TLD?s carry more weight in terms of backlinking than do more common TLD?s such as the .com. This is not true and all else being equal, these TLD?s carry the same weight as their more common counterparts.

    Here is a good writeup on TLD?s,

    Hope that answers your question,

    .com .org. .co (since 2011) are premium international domains
    .co.uk or other National domains certainly seem to work best for national based sites (i.e NOT international)
    .net and a few others work reasonably.
    .me and a few others are not quite as good

    Google do differentiate a little - essp for commercial niches. They made a statement about .co a couple of years back when it ceased to be the Columbian national suffix and became another "premier" suffix - that there was a tiered system.

    Watch out for new ones that might be beneficial in certain niches.

    .google
    .youtube
    .lol

    I kid you not.

    Always try and go with a .com first. If that is not available either think of a better/more brandable domain name, or get the next in line which is the .net. If that is not available, go with a . org, and then you may go with a .co. For other countries like India for example, buy a .in. For the united kingdoms, you should go with .co.uk. I hope this helps you.

    .com is the best.And I would definitely use .org over .net (take wikipedia)
    the(keyword).com works most of the times.

    .com Domains are the best for ranking in Google.com. It has been my experience that this is true and .net's are just harder to rank although .net and .org still rank it is just not as easily as .com so keep this in mind when doing a search for a new domain name. Figure out the best domain you can .com so people can remember it and come back soon to visit your website .

    TLD's

    .com - most preferred for your business

    .net - the next alternate to .com's which are still powerful

    .org - mostly for organiztion .org provides valuable info to the users...
