    Does it matter for the PBN what type of TLD it has?
    Most powerful domains on the market are .com
    But how about other TLDs like : .pro .club .stream .win .bid .men and so on...
    Does it make any difference for google what type of TLD it has??
    It's just those type of TLDs are really cheap (0.88$) compared to .com domains which are relatively expensive.

    As long as it's a gTLD (not country specific) and not a ccTLD (country specific) it doesn't matter, but I'd stay away from TLDs that are notorious for spam, phishing, ect. like .tk, .xyz. Google seems to have special algorithms that are less forgiving for these "Spam TLDs".

    For PBN, you can mix up different top TLDs - .com, .org, .net, etc. One way of diversifying your PBN, but just avoid spammy ones.

    Top TLDs will prefer more than others in Google.

    Closer to .com, the better. (also those global domain are older). But that is not a deal breaker for a Google, as long you have some good content.

    No, it doesn't matter at all for SEO. But .com is easier for people to remember
