    Found a nice keyword, wanna develop a website. Com extension is already taken, but there are net and org extensions available.


    Will .NET rank better than .ORG?

    .NET domains have a much better reach worldwide than .ORG. .ORG domains are more targeted domains than .NET. Therefore, .NET can be reached to more people.

    That's like the strangest pile of misinformation I've ever heard :D:D

    Anyways, I have good ranking NET and ORG domains. No difference really.
    On the cosmetic side - net may look nicer a bit.
    But no real difference, really.

    Secure your position and get them both. Develop one and forward the other.

    .net is more popular than .org from a cosmetic/aesthetic stand point but as far as raw ranking power goes, TLDs do not make a difference. its all about domain age, backlinks, on page SEO, and popularity you can bring your sites. i would recommend buying all TLDs for the same domain whenever possible so you secure the name for yourself, especially for authority sites

    please ignore all the baseless speculation in this post, i have never seen anyone successfully prove a difference between the 2 tlds...

    maybe im wrong, but i have been lurking for quite a while...

    net & org rank exactly the same! Get them both if they're available.
