    I think .co is a bit more real than some of the 2/4 letter tlds. Basically because Google agreed that it will be an international designation and that international web users are used to the .co.

    I've got a few non gaming .co's that can rank for the terms as the other tlds are parked pages. This is where I think the .co's will do well.

    Where has google stated these domains will be treated any different than .me, .tv, .cc, .ws and other similar extensions?

    Also many .tvs that sold for $1K+ during initial launch are now dropping daily. I'm shocked how many people paid over a grand for a domain and then 2 years later decided it wasn't worth renewal

    Yeah I see this being a money maker, not the extensions but the SALE of the extensions. And I thought .co was going to be for "company" not "country" - then again, I have not been paying attention. (or I'm mis-understanding the previous post?)

    I've seen very few non com/net/org domains rank competitively, and none that I know of that have maintained. Again I don't pay a lot of attention.

    The two big factors here are:

    #1 - how will the SE's treat them - So far G has not given equal weight to anything other than the standard 3

    #2 - Most importantly, will "users" ever get into the habit of not typing in the big three extensions. We all already agree by default most people will use .com over net and org - I've never typed in .mobi or anything else. I'm automatically Leary of non standard extensions. Especially .info and such

    Definetely currently we have "market panic" regarding .co domains. Good job of guys who got right to register .co zone. They were just more succesffull in marketing than another guys who hardly tried to promote cc, ws, me and other ltd :-)
    I am sure google will still love .com the most and the others will be roughly in the same line

    given that restricted tld's will probably be a thing of the past within a couple years, i'd say any amount for that domain is too much.

    add in the fact that RB is looking more and more like a shrinking business and that organic SE traffic for rakeback terms converts poorly, and i think you made a good decision to dodge that domain purchase.

    Tell me about it. Beyond bad.
    Currently looking to buy income earning websites. I have a large budget for the right project. If you have any form of money earning site in gambling, finance or any other related niche, and want to sell, ship me a pm and let's work out a deal.

    Also looking for premium domain.

    i think most of the clicks are other rakeback site webmasters checking their ranks who are curious to see how your site looks.

    I think there aren't more valuable keywords than "xy rakeback/deal/offer" etc. for rakeback sites.

    Sounds way overpriced for a domain that cannot realistically be branded and built into a functional real website.

    We did not bid for it. There is a trickle of common typo traffic that exists for "rakeback.com", but I wouldn't imagine enough to cover $8k costs for this specific case.
