Domains general discussion thread. GO GO GO !
Can we take a poll of anybody remembering coming across a .co in a natural search they were making? I sure haven't seen one.
I don't remember ever coming across a .co in a search
.com is first preference. For now and many years to come..
you won't because .co is related to a specific geographical area... like .us or .uk or .in
i think google takes this into consideration....
i live in india, and i have never come across any .us results on google till now, this is because google supplies results based on your location too.**
** purely based on assumptions.
and we will probably never know accurately.
I have a .CO thats bottom of page one for a medium comp term
.co made a deal with google to rank as a non-location based domain, just like .com/net/org - that's why they were supposed to be great - they gave you another shot at a location-generic domain for some tough terms.
It's a lot more like .info in practice though
The biggest problem with .co domains may be just that since they haven't been around as long, no one's really done too much work with them yet.
I predict eventually you will see them as much as .info - not much, but ocasionally you will come across one.
my very unscientific experiment:
search google for:
I only found one .co above a PR5 - a Colombian newspaper (.co was originally location-bound to Colombia) - The Colombian newspaper had a PR6, and it had a lot more age than any of the other .co (presumably it was bought before the .co landrush)
.co was never getting the same par with .com - i guess the 'less is more' rule doesn't work on this one
It never happened mate.
.co looks like nothing more to me than a typo of .com and I am sure that is where all the traffic to these doms come from. Its like registering a wwwdomainname.com as a typo of www.domainname.com. Ridiculous
I have a site ranked #6 for 110 000 EXACT monthly searches, so it's not worthless.
Yeah.. agreed with DamnTees.. to me it just looks like a typo of .com
Whow! Do I give up IM because I can't get the TLD?
Niche research comes before domain research.
Separate names with a comma.
