    I guess .com is the best followed by .net and .org just what everyone prefers.Now if you do not find any of these 3 you must go for .co instead of .info

    I always prefer to go for .com domains... .Net and .co are not much worth.

    I agree with Wordpecker
    .com, .net, .org and .edu links are always better than .co
    .co.in, .us, .co.uk are good to target specific location or country.

    The TLD makes absolutly no difference at all except for one indicator of geo targeting, though this can also be indicated via hosting location and via webmaster tools anyway.

    .com is the universal domain zone. You don't have any subject and usage limits. You can connect your site with sales or news or any other options any moment.
    .net zone is for web technologies mostly, so it is good for your aim as well.

    its depends you business niche, which domain suits on your business. .com is for commercial purpose and mostly IMers use this.

    That's a good point, however I think Google favors .com's at least in my experience. I recently developed several .co sites and had trouble ranking them while similar .com's were ranking on the first page within a matter of weeks.

    i will also prefer this sequence of choosing .com> .net > .org , it also depends on what your site about.

    Well it's still proving true that .com's are better than .co's by a long shot. I've only added two new posts in the last two months and I'm still on page one for the search phrase "blog ideas".

    .COM is better than .Co as many lame internet users aren't aware of .CO
    But SEO pov Google treats .CO same as .COM
    You can check Matt Cutss video on Youtube for .CO domains.
