    It means Google will give no preference to people who register their own Top Level Domain, such as .shop to those using a .com. In other words google gives no weight to the bit aftet the .

    There are a lot of new TLDs coming out, but .com is the main TLD and will hold that position for a long time. You can rank any TLD over any other one though.

    Here is what Matt said

    I take that to mean dot coms will rank superior and not that tlds don't matter at all. Of course dot coms are typically older so separating age benefit from tld benefit would be nearly impossible.

    Anyone saying new domains will outrank aged domains without significant SEO work doesn't have a clue wtf they are talking about anyways. It has been proven many times aged domains are given more leeway with Google and new domains suffer some sort of Google disrespect for 3-6 months after creation.
