    Do my domain name extension will influence search engine result (geo tracking) ?

    for exemple if i use a .ca domain will it be bether ranked in canada
    as for the same exemple do a .ca website will show less often in usa?

    i know nowadays that browser use information about your actual position to show you result that can be more revealant for the user ectect

    i am in canada but im aiming usa custumer ..but my "perfect domain name " is only aviable in .ca

    edit : i was also wondering if .net and .org domain are less seo frendly or less likely to have a good ranking or if custumer will not trust those kind of domain cause it look less professional..?


    thanks a lot

    P.s. sorry if my english is not very good if you need any clarification feel free to ask

    Short answer: TLD doesn't matter for ranking. But will your target audience from the US click on a .ca domain? It depends on your niche... I'm ranking pretty well in the US using the .eu TLD, but getting less clicks then the results below me. Consider this.

    If .org is available then go with that... why would you use .ca then? If .org is taken try .us

    Your English is good and we can easily understand your question.
    The domain name influence search engine result (geo tracking) but not in a big scope and .net + .org domain are also good. You can opt for .org as its professional.
