    Whats better to rank when .com domain is already taken? I'm buying a new domain and both .net and .org is free.

    They are the same.

    Google doesn't give priority over these any more.

    Do proper on page SEO... proper page titles, h1 tags, images with alt title and keywords, good relevant keyword filled content that is unique, h2 tags, h3 tags..
    Do proper off page SEO... backlinks, tiers, etc...

    If you do that, it doesn't matter what TLD you use.

    Too much emphasis is placed on the domain these days.

    Doesn't really matter. All .com .net and .org get ranked pretty much the same. The rest you want to watch out for.

    doesnt matter as far as seo. but you should think about which one looks better to your customers. I think .org sounds like a charity, so .net is better

    If the .com is taken and both .net and .org are available I choose the tld that best fits my niche. If for example the site has commercial intent or is selling something I would go for .net. If it provides information then I would go for the .org. But that depends. When available I like to grab both.

    Years before, .org is much better for SEO. Now, there is no difference. Hope it helpful.
