.us domain?
« on: April 07, 2010, 06:26:46 AM »
Hi,

I was thinking about buying .us domains to create Adsense sites but my question is ... do they rank well compared to .com, .net or .org domains? Google gives no importance to .us domains?

Please post your thoughts,
thanks.

In my experience google ranks country domains equal to .com or .net, a us domain might not rank as well in other countries but if your market is the United States you will be fine.
I am located in Germany and I do fine with de domains, and I see no reason why this should be different with us domains in the US...

As what VideoMike said about the .de - .co.uk rank very well in the UK but perhaps its a bit tougher to rank them in other countries (although I see a lot of them ranking very well in default google searches where you would perhaps expect only .com .net or .org to rank highly).

I have never seen a .us in all my internet searches so for the time being it may be wise to steer clear, as you would in general for the .info domain names.

Joseph

I was just searching for the term "Daniel bible diet" (wihtout quotes) and found the site http://www.biblediet.us/ on #9 position in Google. I also searched for the word "delicious" and found a famous .us site listed on #2 position :)

I to think that .com domain would be more better as compared to .us ,if it comes under geolocation then it would help you in some of the geographic statistics and location.
Overall  .com doman names are more use too to the normal  people. :)
