    Hi I am wondering if in the new Penguin update if .com's or .info domains carry more weight or are they equal in terms of SEO and ranking abilities?

    I want to know purely in an SEO standpoint not which domain will be more rememberable.

    .com/net/org is always better than .info, in every way besides ranking. I dont think it has a major factor in rankings. But .info domains just look spammy IMO

    thats debatable. there could be a chance that the owners of the .com .org and.net didnt bother with ranking their site.

    I like .com strictly because if you tell someone about a site, their brain will automatically usually assume you said .com. So it sucks that you can lose traffic because people are going to someone else's site if they forget it's .net or whatever. If it's a MNS then I would still go with com/net/org but never info. After all, it's only a few extra bucks (unless it's taken).

    Cheers,

    Of course, my point is that for rankings, .info's are treated the same as .net .org .com

    I think coms are still best for rankings, but probably less then before.

    In a niche I got clobbered in, there are a lot of info's ranking. Not here to debate the merits, just observing.
