    I can't believe the first result in Google for "make money online" is a .biz domain. That is really unbelievable for such a competitive keyword. It is above Forbes.com, Mashable.com, and many other high quality sites. That chick has got to be banking $X,XXX per day or more.

    Can't believe it! I've got a chance to talk with her, here is c/p:
    I guess that Google doesn't devalue .biz domains after all.

    I think "one" of the key elements is domain age.

    I know there are many other factors, but owning the domain for 11 years, is showing authority by age. That is helping her a lot.

    Hahah... You made me lough :D

    Anyway, I don't know why, but I was always thinking that Google devalues cheap domains like .biz. Looks like I cached that myth somewhere on internet.

    .biz domains are not "cheap". In fact, for a long time, they were a buck or so more expensive than .coms.
