Will a .se domain name affect SEO?
That depends on the authority of the site. Are you planning to use this tld to create a url thats easy for users? Like youtu.be
I think this is a very interesting question. If your site is authoritative then I would expect Google to pick up on it but I would not ditch the old domain.
If this is a new site, then its uncharted territory. A Swedish tld will score better in google.se
How do you expect Google and other SE to recognize that the site is not Swedish or oriented on Sweden?
I don't have an old domain name. I'm starting a new site.
The domain is coderba.se
Would coderbase.net be better?
Are you having a conversation with yourself or thinking out loud? What's the point of asking a question if you answer them yourself?
I'm out of here!
If you want coderba.se to be the main url, then take both and use the urls as aliases. Use coderba.se in the logo and xf config.
You can also use more advanced SEO methods, but that's another story.
I don't have enough money for both. Coderba.se is $30 and the .net is $10.
If money is an issue and the .net TLD is cheaper, what benefit do you perceive would be gained by using the .se TLD?
Idk...I think the .SE is cooler.
And its shorter.
Yeah I did this a while ago. My domain is xenogamers.org and I purchased xenogame.rs. After a while the coolness factor wears off, and it just becomes a money burden (the .rs domain was $75 a year)
Just get the cheaper one and use the rest of the money on something worthwhile lol.
Ok I'm gonna get .net. I tried code.rs, which was taken. If code.rs was available it would definitely be worth the money.
Unless your trying to corner Sweden, the .net would be better for global status.
I thank @Ernest L. Defoe for inspiring me to use .ms. I am going to buy codeforu.ms. >: D
Hey @Matthew Hawley give me a few minutes and I will send you a coupon code to save yourself like $14.00 on a .ms domain.
You get the discount?
