    Hello, can I rank a .ml domain name in Google?

    Does the TLD affect the ranking?

    If it does what would I have to do to rank my domain?

    Thanks :)

    It is a country specific domain and yes, they do matter atleast it is one of the factors, not the sole one. The attempt to rank depends on the competition of the niche, but more importantly whether you want to rank in google.com or co.uk or some other.

    I have personally found it comparatively easier to rank domains with proper tld's.

    .ML is a free to register, thats why OP is asking....OP if you dont have money to register "real" TLD don't even bother with anything else. I mean, you dont want to invest a single dollar and you expect a return?

    oh, I have money and I would love to buy a domain name but the issue is ether my country is banned from buying from a register or they won't take my bitcoin and there's no possible way for me to get a paypal.

    Mostly free domains are used for mass spam and illegal stuff like scam pages. That's why those domains are "banned".

    I am curious, what if sites like Forbes, CNN link to a . tk domain. Will that .tk rank higher?

    1. .tk is not banned it is cuntry specific domain just like the .ml domain
    2. yes if a highly trusted suthority site like any of the maentioned news site links to a .tk domain it would gat a boost in ranking just as any other domains.

    the real problem with domains like .tk or .ml is that they are cuntry specific and therefor has a harder time ranking in the serps internationally just as a paid cuntry specific domain, however it can be done but requires a bit more work

    I haven't seen any issue ranking with non .com domain names, but I agree I wouldn't use a free domain name.
