    I am going to be building a _________ directory.. Sorry I dont want the cat out of the bag yet.

    Would it be a waste of my time if I make it a .org since the .com was already taken?

    I'd say right off the bat, it's not as great as a .com would be.
    But it worked for wikipedia.org , so if you've got great content I don't see why not.
    If possible try to get yourself a .com, if not take the org

    .org, .net, and . com are all equally rankable. People want to put .com on a pedestal but the other two are just as good from personal experience

    Ranking wise its fine, but if you want your directory to be 'brandable' then stick with a .com
    Most type in traffic will naturally type in .com and it looks way more professional from a brand perspective.

    .org domains build instant trust and credibility with your site visitors as they see that you are not just interested in making money but are committed to making this world a better place. They are identical to other domain names in most other aspects but with the added value of perceived confidence by your visitors.

    If the keyword is EMD and if .com is not available, I will go with .org but if you wanna brand out something then I would always go with .com

    .com is best and on second place .org , third place .net , if 3 of that extension taken then go for .co , because .co ranks very good too
