Domain Extensions

August 2, 2006
Hi Jill,

I have a question for you. Do extensions have any bearing on search engine
return? For example, are sites with .com extensions returned at a higher
ranking than a site with .net or .org?

Thanks.

Hi Melissa,

No, they have no bearing on search results.  However, remember that most
people will assume your site is a .com when they're trying to remember it,
so keep this in mind when choosing your domain.

Best,

 Jill
