  1. When registering a new business domain does one have more weight over the other?

    Looking at a .com and domain.

    from my own experience the differences are that the .com will cost more and is better for geotargetting when it comes to SEO. Although of course if you are wanting to work with people internationally then go for the .com.
  3. Cheers Ben. No, it'll be a UK market.

    some people say it is also good to purchase both domains, therefore in future if you do go global it's there for you to use, certiantly don't want somebody else stealing your business name on the net!

    I purchased the and .com initially and dropped recently. There's not really any difference if your just operating inside the uk, otherwise you'll need .com fo shizzle.

    No real difference in targetting/SEO, search engines are very good at allocating content to the right location based on what they find on the site, plus you can always notify Google in Webmaster tools. I've always used a .com for my own site (since 05 without any problems) and have the redirected to it.

    If I was setting up now I would use the and redirect the .com to the domains have a touch more click through for UK audience searching so that would be my reasoning.

    Hope that helps,
