    .coms are generally more respected by both visitors and SEs; the cost difference is ultimately going to be trivial for the higher conversion rate.

    There's some GoDaddy codes floating around that let you pick up a .com for less than $5 afaik, search google.

    If I want to create a bunch of landing pages for different affiliates say for a biz opp would you use sub domains or buy a new domain for each?

    If you are targetting people who have no clue about IM or net you can use .info. BUt if you are targetting tech people or knowledgeable people use .com

    Depends on budget really, and what you're trying to achieve with your landing page.

    If you have literally no budget at all, then don't register mass domains, but I wouldn't even try affiliate selling without a budget. With no marketing budget, unless you have the greatest niche ever (ie, you pretty much discover an untapped market) you can wait weeks before a customer slips through the PPC marketers, and somehow lands on page 15 of their search to end up on your site and buy. Affiliate selling without marketing is just that slow. Yes you can bang your head at it and make a profit, but it's realistically going to be below minimum wage, and if you're smart enough to get sales without a budget, you're smart enough to be more productive with your time.

    If you're looking to convert a range of products under one domain, I'd make it a review site and forward leads to the sales page of the actual product you're endorsing

    I would just register a site like
    com--get-more.info then you can just use sub domains. They will look like

    acai-berry. com--get-more.info
    netflix. com--get-more.info
    etc.

    Thats an easy way to get your keywords in your domain name.
    Saves time and money too;)

    I usually use sub domains on a .com with my software.

    I say .infos are fine for landing pages if you are driving traffic via PPC or article marketing but not for natural search. If you're promoting a bunch of products in the same niche I'd go with a authority implying .com and make subs off of that.

    I personnally always go with the .com.

    Not sure if it does affect my QS, (but can only be a plus for G), but for credibility and branding purpose, IMO, it this best choice.

    And the few extra $ it cost it nothing when I look at my ROI.
