    Folks,

    Assuming i found an emd but all else being taken, left .info and .co which one better for seo ?
    Still have .mobi and .me but i'm not sure about these two though.

    .info is more conventional (like .com , .net, .org) + much cheaper also
    :tongue: but .co sounds better? but more pricey (ok, I admit I'm bit of a cheapskate here:D)
    but won't mind if it is better for seo.

    Also .net / .org / .info for an emd that has to do with providing education info/guide and maybe some calculations (.info sounds perfect, but in terms of seo which one of those 3 ranks better).

    TQ.

    In my experience .co without any doubt but since info domains are like 50c-2$ a piece you could probably get both ;)

    .co works as a generic TLD, It works better than .info for me

    I'd go with .co. It sounds more professional than .info and I've seen some .co sites ranking for ultra competitive keywords.

    Thanks guys.

    .co for the 1st EMD (non education site)

    As for the 2nd EMD (the education info/guide and maybe some calculations; site)... .info? over the .org /.net (coz they're available). Coz it's like the site is for info but seo prefers .net /.org?...arrgh:confused:


    Next, now I need some discount coupons esp for .co and one .ws (another EMD - only .ws available)...damn I do have quite a few EMDs....discounts would be nice esp .co & .ws are not really cheap.
    So far i can only source discounts for the .com...which i have no use:(
    Anyone has a clue where to get cheap .co and .ws? Should i start a new thread inquiring this?

    Throw a Z or a Q at the end and get the .com These get read by bots and they disqualify the last letter. True story.

    Better yet screw the EMD and get something unique along lines of niche and build it BIG!

    Get both, .info are so cheap. Never ranked .co though so idk how it would differ. However, its whats on the site that counts.

    in my experience .co much better and ranks pretty well even in ultra competitive niche. It is now considered as a generic tld just like .com, .net or .org, and sounds very professional. If you are in for a long run, then go for it.

    This. Get them both, at least for the first year.

    .co is too new to really know how the TLD will do long-term for SEO, but either TLD can be ranked and do well if you know what you're doing and work at it. Plus, with both, you have a number of opportunities for testing of your own.
