    Google has crawled my site 90+14 times this month alone and I have a .info domain.

    I guess this is the reason that my Google search traffic keeps rising.

    As has been mentioned Google will crawl your .infos. All domains are treated the same when it comes to crawling.

    thank you guys for replies
    i just bought domain www.healthinfo.info
    the monthly search volume for the keyword Health Info is 60,000
    so is there any potential to get that traffic with .info domain?

    .info's is a top TLD like .com, .net, and .org so it is treated the same.

    The only thing is visitors sometimes don't trust .info's and it's quite a well known fact that .com's convert better than it's .info counterparts.

    Yes, most definitely! I bought an .info domain earlier last week, and i thought it won't get indexed. However, after doing link building and SEO by the help of one of the mods :) I got it indexed.

    hi,

    off-topic but i don't find it on the forum...

    i have some good keywords but all domains are registered...if i add shop at the end "keywordshop.com" will it be a big disadvantage for seo ranking?

    thanks

    why it will be disadvantage with SEO point of view... Nothing wrong with it... You can go ahead and buy domain and make site on them...

    Of course Big G crawls .info sites. Heck they crawl all sites and domains. Even if its .sam2009 type of domain it would still crawl it. That is why they call it Spider, it crawls everywhere.

    i agree they are not common,but thats bcoz of this myth only.
