    I just finished the study and will reveal the answer in a while.

    Of keywords with 1000 searches or more, what percentage page 1 results on Google do you think are .com as opposed to any other .com?

    I searched a small sample of keywords such as "puppy training" and "how to blog" and I noticed that the websites are .com domains around 90% of the time (9 of the results were .com domains while the 10th results was usually .org or .net), although the results change if I search something by location such as "SEO Australia" (this yielded between 40%-70% .com domains).

    You should mix your queries with local results. If you search for localized keywords such as (services) in (location). Then depend on the country you can get local results more in the SERP. for e.g. *.co.uk, *.com.sg, *.co.in

    Yes, this was Google.com, searching from a US IP address that I did the case study on.
