gTLDs rank better, at least for local searches

a rather limited ad hoc analysis; partly because the number of.Berlin domains is still relatively small and because very few of the new gTLDs are currently represented in search results.

But it is the first I have seen... Richard Hearne originally shared:   Marcus Tober I just read your econsultancy piece with interest.

Did you check to see if any of the new .berlin websites had previously been published and ranked? Presumably many of these sites had been on .de .com etc, so where did the previous domains rank prior to moving over to .berlin?

It would be great to know a little more about the methodology, and how the claim "gTLDs rank better, at least for local searches" can be supported? Will gTLDs help you rank higher in search results? Econsultancy The range of generic top-level domains (gTLDs) is expanding to include new options such as .Hotel, .RealEstate and .Berlin.
