    Hello,

    I'm starting a new business, but I'm not an seo pro.
    As ample of .com extensions are already registered , hence I'm thinking to go on with .co extension. (The name ideas for my business are not available for registration with .com)

    hence, please let me know whether .co is good for seo? I'm going to learn and implement the same on my site.
    Thank you for your help in advance.!

    I do like (.com) for commercial, although if the name is already taken, you could consider a different name.

    I personally prefer .com domains although when the .com domain I need is not really available and I need to use that preferred name I have no choice but to pick from the available. Normally, I pick from the available version of my preferred name to get a .com and just make necessary adjustment from there.

    .com always.. .net or .org next imho... if targeting Google UK I will always go with the uk TLD .co.uk I find it works better there.. overall .com would be first choice regardless if it's usa or uk you're targeting.

    Go with .com if you are a business .org if you are an organization. Don't try to get fancy.

    I think .com extension is more formal and international. If you can (and have choices), choose .com !
