    So what are your guys thoughts on all the new GTLDS that are coming out or already out?

    I have been using .company I like the extension. Anyone prefer or buy any good ones? Have you tested how they rank?

    I'm not a big fan of the new ones.. I managed to pickup a few .me and .co domains but besides that I prefer .com/.net

    All the hype will eventually die off and .COM will still be king......

    I agree that .com is easiest to remember and most popular. But as far as search relevance is concerned, .com has no keyword relevance. As in Google does not read .com as any type of Key Word. Where as the new GTLDs are read as a keyword. I have tested this myself.

    So for example, if you were to own: RoofCleaning.com the keywords in your URL is only Roof and Cleaning - 2 keywords
    But if you were to purchase RoofCleaning.company you now have 3 keywords Roof, Cleaning, and Company. - 3 keywords

    So based off of this, I feel GTLDs are more powerful than .coms.

    What are your guys thoughts on this?
