    Has anyone had experiences ranking micro niche sites with .info extensions?

    Also can someone tell me if this is a good?

    500 word article on Home page
    500 word article page
    privacy policy

    and should I put the 2nd article on a page or a blog post?

    Thanks!

    Here are my thoughts on " .info " site.
    Now, bear with me, this may end up to be a long post.

    At the moment, I have 4 .info sites.
    They are on 4 seperate servers.
    The content on all of them is exactly the same, well sort of.
    Here is what I did.

    1- Grabed 10 articles about laptops from eZine articles.
    2- Put all 10 articles through "Content Hurrice". Do some search in "G" and you will know what it does.
    3- Bought 4 .info domains
    4- Created 4 sites using XSite Pro. The sites were created in Mar 2011
    5- Did not monetize the sites at all.
    6- All sites have the same exact keywords.
    6- Left the sites alone. I basically forgot about them.
    7- Checked the sites for one of my keywords (1,050,000 results) for that keyword about 7 days ago and here is what I found:
    a) One site is at positions 1,2 & 12.
    b) Another site is at position 13
    c) Another site is at position 14
    d) Another site is at position 16
    e) All sites are at 4 top positions of page 3

    Now, the above results are for different pages of course.
    Did I do any backlinking? Well, not really. All I did was link one site from the other three.

    You can draw your own conclusions from the above.

    I am now seriously thinking of listing all of them on Flippa as a bundle.

    What were the approximate google keywordtool "exact" search for the keywords you're ranking for if you don't mind me asking?

    According to Micro Niche Finder, it is 480 for both Global and Local (U.S)

    That's really low, you should aim for around 2,000. But the least you should do is 1,200.

    You should have also did this on a .com domain or something so we can see if info is penalized?

    Nakota757 & SkullTraill

    You guys seem to miss the whole point of the exercise.
    My sites are an experiment to see if " .info " sites can rank in Google.
    In this case, they did rank at the top of 1,050,000 results.
    And on top of that, the content is not even unique.
    Actually, the way the content is done, someone might even say that it is not real content because of "Content Hurricane".

    Donor,

    Actually, I bought 2 domains this month, one is a ".ORG" and the other a ".NET"
    I still used "Content Hurricane" for the content.
    All pages for both sites were indexed within a week.
    They are both Amazon products review sites.
    Also, I bought a backlinking service for one of them from this forum.
    Now I wait and see what happens.

    .info can rank but it doesn't provide you with the EMD boost .com/net/org does.

    Please define "EMD boost".
