    yes. Its worth it for local websites. Also if you do something cool with the domain like:www.buyfrom.us

    TLD's wont effect Seo as far as I know

    Say you want to have a website targeting only France traffic. Then it's best to go for .fr domain.

    Similarly, it applies for any geo-TLDs.

    No. Go for .com if you want to go global

    In my experience it does not make a big difference. TLD is overrated. If you have a good opportunity for juicy non-com domains go for it.

    It does help with the ranking for the local region which the TLD is being refereed to.

    I think it's good but depends on traffic area that you're targeting.

    TLD is not as important as some would say. The content and it's backlinks are the main issue, you can rank globally with any TLD.

    Do they belong to the same niche you're working on?

    I agree but .com makes it much easier. OP if they belong to same niche, why not 301 redirect them?

    no, but the backlinks profile is really good, and the DA is high
    so I want to know will the TLD will help the global ranking?

    Buying geo location domain names can create more competition for your website global ranking. (would very hard to rank it globally)
