Using a domain hack or the actual name .com?

    This is an example but should I use:

    market.link

    or
    SEMrush
    marketlink.com

    This would be from a branding perspective and I own both domain names so I can use either one.

    Tell me your opinion please!

    .com is the king.

    Tell your mom or dad the xxxxx.link domain and ask them 2 days later about the name and they will tell you xxxxx.com

    While this is true the new TLDs are going to become much more popular in a year or two. I would simply forward the .com to the .link and utilize both but start branding around .link.

    It's the same name... the same letters...however you are considering dropping the 3 most important letters that 100% of the world associates with the internet and a domain name........ MarketLink.com for the win! You can use market.link but I wouldn't dare put it on a billboard because for most people it doesn't look like a domain. You might have people type in market.link.com. I also like mikebarbaro's idea with forwarding the .com to the .link. However, will Search Engines treat a .link with less importance? (I personally don't know.)
