I recently moved my Tech Blog from a blog-spot sub-domain to a top level domain name, TechGau.org.Many people asked me why I did not go for a .com .net .in etc as an extension for my domain name.So I thought of explaining this with the reasons I thought of while choosing the .org domain name.Gautham On Google+
- .Org gets an instant respect and a feeling of trust from the users, which is very much necessary to build a successful website.
- .Org is equal if not better than .com for Search Engine Optimization.Country wise domain extensions lose out on a part of SEO.
- .Org is also the domain extension of some of the top blogs in my niche, so I thought they must be on to something that others are not, example - Seomoz.org Labnol.org.
- .Com is a really common domain extension and hence I was not too interested in grabbing for it, .Org on the other hand gives a much more unique name to a brand.
