Does .info TLD ranks high in Search Engine ?
Many people wonder whether .info domain can have the same priority like .com or other TLDs. I had been observing the Search Engine pattern and found an interesting analysis that i like to share.
MattCutts in Google I/O SEO expert video explicitly said we take all TLD the same importance.
Relatively this was false statement. Every .info domain that is added to the Google database have less Search Engine Rank Position (SERP) compared to other Top Level domains (TLD) . Because Godaddy and many other vendors sells .info domains from 99cents and thereby , there are millions of domain raised in the last few years in this TLD. This has also made many spammers to take the position in Web and in the Search Engine.
I tested with two new domains – .info and .com , uploaded a sample Home page and had a link building strategy for .info while i didn’t work for COM domain. After a month , when i analyzed for the Search Queries, i found .com domain ranked in the Top 3 Position on the low competition Keyword while .info did not appear in the 1st or 2nd page. It took more than 6 months to be captured well SE for info and then after to have same priority.
Simple Algorithm that Googlers may have defined in the Search Engine pattern would be
- Quality of post
- Number of post
- Registered and has been active( content updates) for more than 6 months.
- Trusted(Quality) backlinks
Unless these criteria are satisfied , .info domains are worthless .
As some people misunderstand , the bottom line of this was .info is worth in SE but you need to do much work than .com domains .
