    Nope... it doesnt make a difference,

    Use a .com if it is a commecial website... use a .org if it is a non-profit organization.

    As .com domain extensions are much more popular than others.
    Suppose you came to know about the name of a site,but you don't know the extension.What is the first extension will come to your mind?.com,isn't it.

    Generally there is no advantage of .com or .org or any extensions in terms of SEO.
    All these will play a role,if you are thinking abut country specific search.
    Suppose you are targeting UK search engine,then .co.uk extension can help you.
    Otherwise any extensions will be valued equally by major Search Engines.

    IT really doesn't make a difference... if you don't brand your dot.com is as bad as your dot.name

    My friend,if you are thinking about changing domain name for PR
    I must say you,it's a bad idea.Domain name has nothing to do with PR.

    Everybody above are giving you the same answer; which is correct. The only caveat is memorability... If you you tell someone a website address is widget.net and they forget the .net... they will almost always first try widget.com... then maybe try widget.org, widget.info, widget.net, etc. But, except for memorability, there is truly no difference as far as SEO.

    Hmm ya..

    SEO is more about linking and content. Content is a king.
    Usually, a company... a rich company will bought all the .net and .com for a certain domain. For example, www.mickymicky.com, www.

    They might bought/reserve www.mickymicky.net, www.mickymicky.net.sg... or whatsoever. This is quite a good idea to reserve a domain.

    But... they duplicate the website. I mean... if you surf for .net .com and .net.sg for mickymicky. They point you to a same content website. Will it affect the ranking due to the SPAM, or Cloking issue.

    It seems their cheating SE. and create their own site and link to each other. (SE don't like spam and duplicate content)

    The reason your blog is not showing up is that you have no title tags, no copy....Work on that first, then great inbound links and you will get great placement for the keywords your are focusing on.
