    I have found a niche for a new product in our country and found that all the main keyword domains are available. keyword.com, .info, .net, .org etc -- I bought almost all of them.

    My question is, if all my sites would be in page 1 while each having different content but contain the same form / video. Would that be against Google's TOS? Is that illegal in any way?

    Why not build the .COM into an authority site and have the inner pages dominate the front page positions. Then just park the .NET / .ORG etc so no-one else can have them.

    I found a micro niche recently and someone was dominating the top 5 positions with 1 domain.

    It's not against TOS, but it will be obnoxious for visitors of your sites to see the same video over and over. Your bouncerate will skyrocket and that might hurt all your sites. Also, do not expect to keep the top spots without competition coming from a non EMD site with much better quality than yours.

    Do you seriously need to develop all of the exact same domain name with different TLDs?

    Redirect to your favorite TLD. Seriously, focus on making one site great instead of 4+ sites that may actually hurt you more in the end.

    I agree with LakeForest, just redirect the other domains and concentration on developing the .com into an authority website.

    Good points from you two.

    I think I'm going with parking the domains and then optimizing the .com domain and then build links for all subpages for them to appear in page 1.

    Thanks guys for your help.

    Definately what id do, then you only have one site to worry about. Fill it out with plenty of content and use longtails in the niche on the inner pages too so you get plenty of traffic.

    You should set up redirects from the TLDs you're not using to the one you're developing your site with. Parking is becoming more detrimental with each algorithm update.

    A bunch of links being sent to parked domains will not help you anymore; Google is not keen on seeing a bunch of parked domains, and will not allow them to get the 2,3,4,5 spots under your main site.

    A competitor will see this and will take action and he'll get the number 2 spot and keep working to push your top site lower. Your mission should be to get to and stay at #1, not trying to monopolize the first page.

    Im not sure if you've confused something ive said or you are talking to the OP. I meant rank the inner pages to first page not the parked domains. The site i just looked at recently was in the top 5 spots with example.com, example.com/example1, example.com/example2 etc.

    What if you just parked those unused domains with your host with no backlinks? Surely no penalty for that or are Google frowning upon it? Ive never earned much from parking anyway so redirection is probably the best idea like you say. I just thought he might earn some passive income if its a popular product niche.

    I really should get in the habit of using quotes more, but yeah my post was directed to OP :). Learned my lesson with quotes; sorry for the confusion

    No its cool. Ive never built a link to a parked domain. I wasnt sure if you confused my suggestion. Anyway, he's got the answer he needs. :)
