    .com

    OR

    .co

    Waiting for your opinions.

    If I don't see any .co domain on top 10 for local business.

    It makes no difference at all. Any difference you see has to do with popularity of the extension. I'm sure you'll get different answers here, but as someone who has ranked .com, .net., .co and even the (for some reason) dreaded .info, I'm telling you, it makes no difference. Unless I'm the luckiest guy in the universe..

    I think that it doesn't matter, I don't notice any real difference in the sites hat I create.

    The TLD doesn't matter, at all. I'm talking for ranking purposes, for a brand you're likely gonna want a .com

    But when it comes to pure ranking it doesn't matter, my biggest sites have been .co and .org

    As the business is local this is a best fit. But where as in future if have any plan regarding globalizing the business getting .com domain is not easy as you know that very well...

    Think before you fix..


    Best wishes for your local business....

    .co is working as well as .com - if you do the proper promotion. For local business - if the clients are targeted in one country I suggest as well the local extension - Spain - .es for example

    From my experience, .com is simply the best. Have been doing the same things for .com .net .org from the same niche, and to rank .com is by far the easiest thing, doesn't matter if for local or global!

    If you have an option, go for .com for your local SEO!
