    do .net domains rank equally good as .com domains?


    Hey there folks,

    Im just wondering if anyone got any knowledge about if .com domains should rank better than .net domains in search engines?

    Do a .net domain have an equal chance of ranking the same as a .com ?

    .net sites for sure will rank equally well. They are right up there with .com and .org

    I think the only difference in some of the other domain extentions .ws .us is that they will not always respond to a whois search (just my observation, not supported by any testing).

    This is really a tough one. I typically stick to .com's mainly because my superstitious biases make me think that they rank better. I believe that this is simply not true though. It would be nice to see some testing done on this. I'm too busy trying to make sites rank using methods that have more weight than the domain to test this myself ;)
