    Keen to list a new domain and really want the 3 keywords in domain but most of the one are gone.

    I am in UK an .com .co.uk .net .org.org.uk are swallowed up

    I can register .info .me.uk and a few others. Will this cause me any harm in the SEO world?? Does the end part make a massive difference.

    We have ranked google p1 for most of our sites but they are mostly .co.uk or .com

    THANKS

    Just get a variation of the domain you want, maybe a plural or something, .info's are fine, however I stay away from them from a marketing perspective, perfectly fine though.

    Bare in mind .info's are harder to rank.

    All TLD's are treated equally, apart from country based etc. Unless you're talking about from a non SEO perspective, which I agree.

    Everyone has their beliefs. I believe that .info is not worth your time but someone like Ericsson will tell you otherwise.

    Google prefers a hyphen to seperate words in a url:
