    Question Can .tk, .ml, .gq, .ga, or .cf domains ever rank?


    Might sound like a silly question - but in your experience, have any of the "free" TLD's ever had a snowball's chance in ranking? I'm referring of course to .tk, .ml, .ga, .gq, and .cf ....or can they be used to build SEO, as in redirecting to your site?

    Redirecting them (or any domain name) to your site will not affect seo at all; unless those redirected domains have backlinks.
    Otherwise, yes... no reason why you can't rank them - you just need good content and 'domain authority' (backlinks).
