    only .us and .me is available. everything else is taken.
    I was reading through some old threads but the information seems outdated.
    in 2014, are .me and .us extensions harder to rank than .com or are they equal?
    should I go with EMD.us EMD.me or EMDsomething.com

    I think .US is better because .ME is supposed to be used for personal websites.

    You can go with .us if you want to share the earnings with us else go with .me. :D

    .me and .us are still easier to rank in 2014 than .info, but I'd go with EMDsomething.com.

    I thought I should mention I am not concerned about how the domain looks to people....meaning, I dont care if the domain is not memorable....All I care about is which one is easier to rank?
    EMD.me
    EMD.us
    EMDsomething.com

    Weird, because .me is actually the TLD for Montenegro, it has nothing to do with personal websites. .us should rank better for google.com, but there's no specific rule.

    true, and .co is colombia, but these are now considered generic and not country specific.

    coms are always better, add prefixes or suffixes to your keywords and get ranking.

    I sense a lot of competition for that keyword.

    Are you sure you want to go for it?

    EMDsomething.COM is better but if not available then EMD.us, .US is better than .ME
