    I wanted to get your thoughts on using .xyz domains.

    I know the google umbrella company is using the extension, but I have one beef with the extension.

    if I paste the domain in an sms or some other messaging app, it does not always seem to recognize it as a link.

    I think they are pretty worthless in my opinion.

    with time when we will run-out of .com domains and other country domains maybe after that...
    Google has done it they want to show they are like perfect company from A to Z

    There's been many threads about this domain you'd probably want to see opinions over there.

    I don't own a single one and probably won't in the future. They don't look good to me.

    I register them for stuff where I expect a lifetime of <1 year - I will probably never renew one but if it's still alive for the purpose it's being used for, then ofc why not.

    All I know is that .xyz is the most used TLD atm for spamming in the Internet.

    I have purchased 20-30 of them recently as they are damn cheap. Good for testing stuff, redirection, link tracking & so on.

    few years ago, bitcoin was crazy sense but now it's one of best payment method. So I think with time xyz will become good link juice for your links campaign.

    thanks everyone for the feedback. I had bought a single xyz that had a great keyword, I will probably use it as a redirect as some have suggested
