    Historically, the order you want is:
    1. .com
    2. .org
    3. .net

    And this is still true to some degree I believe, but I haven't run any direct tests lately. I just bought a .co a few days ago and it's ranking fairly well and getting hits after just a few private blog network posts for backlinks.

    The extension helps to some degree, but SERP ranking depends more on your site quality, on-page SEO, and backlinks.

    I've ranked biz and co just fine. I'd rather get a non-emd .com, .org, or .net though.

    I am 100% agree with him, search engine ranking depend on really the quality of the site and back links made, it may that you got the ranking initially if you got exact match domain, but due to the low quality of the site, you will loose the ranking after few time.

    so better is to maintain the quality of the site with effective on page and off page work

    Form me -
    1.com,
    2.org,
    3.net,
    4.info,
    5.biz

    I feel that my ranking efforts influences on the results exactly like that.

    This. You can rank ANY tld's with enough links but com/net/org gets the EMD boost.
