Before you begin your internet domination plan, you must first pick a suitable domain name. You will first need to decide if the actual TLD itself is important.
People now prefer the dot coms and the dot orgs over the lesser .info, and this is a hot topic among marketers. The theory is that a .com will rank higher than a .info in search results.
This, however, is not true. Google will always rank content and quality above anything. If you had great content on a .info, and it had enough authoritative backlinks etc., you would certainly see your pages ranking, much higher than the preferred .coms.
Do not be misled. If you are working with a tight budget, then go with your wallet.
The next thing you need to decide is if you want an aged domain, or a fresh off the shelf one. Aged domains are always great for carrying over some of Google’s page ranks or the links that are already built – so this can help you get ranked much quicker, if you are buying an aged domain. To find good quality aged domains, you can check out Freshdrop.net.
