    Here is my story...I found solid KW, started a website (a year ago), put some articles (100) and didnt care too much about the website (started my other project).

    Recently, saw the states and the site is ranking catastrophic (a few visitors Daily). For domain name i choosed EMD with .co and I think that I did a huge misstake (I was listening lies from G stuff about domain extensions and that it is not immportant if your site is .com, .net, .cc, .co etc and I followed them blindly)

    Now, the plan is to move my site to let's say KWsite.com

    Is this right choice, or should I keep my site on existing EMD.co and start to build backlinks?

    Thank you

    If the competition is low then it's not worth switching, with a little SEO you should be able to rank it, otherwise go ahead and get a KWsuffix.com.

    I say go for it, you will not get far with .co Honestly never seen a .co domain on first page of Google and most people are not familiar with the extension.

    .com is usually the more trustworthy tld, but if you're doing fine with the .co, there's no reason to switch. you may keep the .com version just so others don't cybersquat it.

    So it is better to stay with .co?
    Commpetition is not so weak, in top 10, there are articles from 4 high authority sites and also a YouTube video, but there are no competitors with much or strong backlinks.
