    Hello
    I want an EMD. everything is taken, .biz .com info .net .org .co .us everything
    even if I put - between the 2 words, nothing is available.

    so I am thinking of buying .bz or .nl
    google claims they look at these as generic tlds, but I am not so sure.

    has anyone here tried ranking these tlds in google US?

    and a related question (if you know the answer) if a domain is in godaddy auction and nobody buys is, what happens after the auction? will I be able to register it for $10?

    Those are ccTLD's, not worth going for. Take non-EMD, it'll be almost as good and can be ranked with little more work.

    Those are localized and will be biased towards the local language. Search for stuff in your niche and you probably won't see any such tld's...that should tell you something.

    I'd use these type of domains for only my private email purpose. such as support[at]ranking.bz .nl etc..

    I think having these domains for your money site isn't a good idea.

    Why going after an EMD?

    because in my experience, it's much easier to rank an emd.

    Any possible gain from the EMD here is wasted due to the ccTLD.
