    Okay this a probably a total noob question but I been searching the forums and well elsewhere and I can't seem to find a definative answer

    Want to put put up a comercial site and the .com and . net are taken my next alternative is .org, .however I don't know if I can use it for this project without having it put down being a commercial venture

    Also I want to know how .org sites rank compared to the .com .net as a TLD
    I may be forced to go to .tv which, I believe is like 40 bucks instead of 7.99 and I also dont know how they rank to g00gle and Yah00 either, and I gotta act fast so by tonight I have to make this happen.

    Just thought of this...If I can't put commercial content on an .org site can I just redirect the traffic to another commercial site and just use an index file optimized for the keyword so it stays higly ranked and do the redirect?

    Just a thought all this stuff is pretty new and I am reading this stuff like 6-8 hours a day sice I discovered it a few weeks ago..

    I don't believe there's any enforced restriction on content for org's. They can perform verry well in Google, one of my best sites is an org, been making money for years.

    Just watch out for trademarks, if you're serious about the site then try to find an alternative com (as well as the org)

    thanks for the reply and I cant say what the site is about because the site is about something we can't talk about here. The .com and .net are taken but only the .net is being used.

    I wasnt even going to worry about getting the domain but the truth is when people research this system and type in the name I want to be the top organic list if I can..and have it be the same as my regular domain. the company is only 3 weeks old and the guy that bought the .net hasn't even optimized and he is number 1 organic with .net

    Maybe I am wasting my time but like I said when people research the company I wante to be the sponser on the front page..

    Blessings
