    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.pl and XYZ.com.pl 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.pl?

    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 .pl sites to get your ranking in google.pl. The domain extension isn't going to make much difference, the .pl 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 PL.
