    I have never had an issue with either SEO wise. I choose one over the other when it comes to marketing rather than SEO....depending on what I am promoting.

    only choose .org if you're running a business is filled with old and sick people. Or ur a freak wanting to save the planet or you're just a chauvinistic women want to exercise your rights(feminist).

    For selling stuff- .net . Like a above- .org, nuff said.

    For heavens sake, .org means your an organization, which more often used by non-profit org, or get both and redirect one to another as you please.

    Hey Wak!

    Here's a "Wickedly Evil Trick" I just recently learned. I haven't tried it yet, but I am told that it will work.

    Look at my thread below and scroll down to "rhino's" reply. Then think about it and how buying a domain name that STARTS with "com" would work . . . ESPECIALLY when you create a subdomain with the name of the product you are promoting.

    Here's the thread:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/white-hat-seo/60102-subdomains-affiliate-products.html

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    always preferred net over org, as org just 'feels' like it should be for groups, unions, churches, etc. net I guess has a certain appeal because it is the inter-net after all!

    on the fence as to whether there is any real difference as far as seo, and ranking, etc

    R-

    ps -thanks to the 'Wiz' for taking a liking to the idea I stumbled across ;)

    It's for a high ticket mentoring program. So .net is perfect :D .com-discount and .com-discounts are taken :( my fave ones. Decided on one though.

    Buy both and split test but I have always had luck with .NET's when .COM is not available.

    I prefer net over org.

    I have tested both and have found net to outrank org most of the time.

    Plus, like others have stated, org just seems like something for an actual organization like churches, non-profit organizations, unions, etc.

    My vote's for net.
