Limitless new domain options to define yourself online

Hello All
This is not a wordpress question but I want to know your thoughs?

What do you guys think about urls like mywebsite.social or yoursite.ninja or anyotherwebsite.market

Pros and cons? Google positioning? SEO?

Thanks in advance!
Waldemar

    Hey Waldemar,

    Hope you're doing well today!

    I like the idea of the extension giving a more specific category to the site; I think that would make browsing for sites easier - ie. all restaurants have .rest - so if there is another business with the same name but different industry then you can clearly see which one you're after.

    Which I guess is the intention of it all, but I don't see that really coming into play for a long time since everyone still goes for .com :smiley:

    Maybe eventually it will require 2 extensions. .rest.ca - restaurant in Canada lol.

    As for SEO, I haven't really looked much into the value of the extension SEO wise recently - I'm sure it's changed since I last researched it too. I remember .org, .net, and .com being said to hold the most authority - I feel like that's changed now. All about focusing on quality content.

    Again, that's just my thoughts - I haven't done a ton of research into it or anything :slight_smile:

    As for letting users define their own extensions(if that's what your title refers too) I think that would just be chaos :smiley:

    Interesting question - thanks for posting Waldemar!

    Cheers,
    Tyler
