What I'd like to know is if I had two identical sites...the only difference being that one had a .com url and the other a .info url for instance...would the search engines place the .com site higher than the .info site in the results pages? Would love to hear what you pro's think about the weighting difference (if any) between the different url extensions etc?

Why don't you try it and see. That's a whole lot better than all the speculation that anyone else can make.

Yep thanks Jill will do, but perhaps in the meantime, there are others out there who can share any experience they have had of such an experiment???

Love the forum btw...1st class resource.

I don't see any difference based in the TLD. I have .com, .net, .org, .info and others... ranking depends on the work you put into it and the popularity of the site.

That being said, if I have the opportunity to buy the .com for standard rates, that's my first preference simply because returning visitors are most likely to think everything ends with .com. But I've never paid someone else to purchase their .com version of a domain name I want- I just pick a different TLD.
