    For Mini niche sites, are .infos harder to rank than .coms? Or is that just a myth?

    Just a myth.
    com is considered to be better for branding purposes this is the reason you see them more often on the top spots.

    do you feel it would impact earnings for adsense, cb, etc. when .infos are used?

    In my experience it doesn't affect anything when it comes to MNS, average Joe doesn't care too much about the TLD, so is Google. It might be a problem when you're trying to establish a brand - if some com ranks above you, it will steal the traffic.

    YES .info's are much harder to rank.

    I made a .info site back in December and it's taken me 5x the work to rank it:

    i agree that .info's are harder to rank for. i started to only use them for sites where no traffic comes from search engines. just my opinion

    .com domain easy to rank, one of the reason is it's easy to remember everyone , .info is just for saving money. Nothing more than that.

    .info's are tougher to rank but sometimes you have no choice because the emd's are already taken up.

    I'd go with EMDguide.com or something over .info
