    Hi,

    if i target a german keyphrase and all .com / .net /.org are reserved do you think it's possible to take a .de domain?

    From my feeling .de domains look more serious to german words or phrases, from a customer view i'm sure it's better, but what about google?

    Do they like .de domains with german phrases/words?

    Thanks

    Sure, go for it! Negative effect of .de and german host is that you will have no chance to hide your whois.. so thats not very good for blackhat activity... :D

    PS: have a search for "geld verdienen", you´ll see that there are a lot of .de domains as well as some .com´s and .net´s. So it will defenitely be good if you register a .de when you target germany.

    Yes, if you target a specific country it's better to get their domain extension. Google seem to favor those
