    Hi,
    i need to register an EMD and all four .com/.net/.biz/.org are being parked. What would you guys suggest should i register? what would be best tld in terms of domain authority and SEO except for local cc tld ofcourse. I do not want to register cc tld as it is too expensive.
    Thanks

    Like reallife said, look for Partial Match Domains (PMD). After the EMD algorithm update last year, EMDs do not rank very well, so a PMD is actually a better option. And since a .com is better than the rest, go for a .com PMD

    all of the my domain which i have and which are EMD are doing much better than the rest. and in this case i feel it would also do good if i stick to EMD since all the major tlds .com/.net/.biz/.org are parked only and none of them have the relevant content on them.
    So wouldn't my domain do good in this case? what do you guys think?

    Use a dash in the domain name. Note, in terms of ranking, what's going to matter at the long run is the quality of your backlinks.

    One that can work well is .mp - see chi.mp for details. Not cheap, though ...

    As mentioned by other members, go for partial match domain. The quality of content and backlinks define your ranking.

    I add sometimes "the+keyword" and keyword is already taken and works great.

    I would steer clear of some ccTLD's, but I think Google would be fine with INFO/CC or even TV in replace of those other extensions..
