    Hello, I have found that the word XYZ has abour 40.000 searches monthly and very low competition!

    I would like to target it for Poland and Polish language.
    However XYZ.** and XYZ.com.** are already registered :(

    I would like to buy a .com or .eu or .net.


    Which domain is better to have the site 1 in google searches for that keyword in Poland or for users using google.**?

    What do you suggest?

    There probably isn't going to be much difference really. Ultimately your going to want to get plenty of backlinks from .** sites to get your ranking in google.**. The domain extension isn't going to make much difference, the .** would have helped but since that's taken I wouldn't worry about it too much.

    Having said that, I would go for the .com, simply because its more user-friendly.

    Go with .com and then use GWT and set your domain to taget **.
