    Default .Casino Domains

    Been hearing a fair bit about the new .casino extension domains and some crazy $ amounts involved with these. Anyone been buying any? Can't seem to get around the $140ish reg fee - seems quite crazy to me.

    You can read more on the topic here and here.

    The price is a rip off, and there's no evidence of .casino domains ranking anywhere in the SERPS as far as I can tell.

    I don't think people will get used to these new extensions anytime soon. It might take a decade. Or never.

    The best use of .casino domains is (was) to buy a good one for 139.99 and sell it to someone who sees $xx,xxx value in it. But the good ones never made it past the pre-reg stage.

    The domain probably has to be Online.casino, My.casino or Vegas.casino to be worth anything. Wager.casino, Sunrise.casino or Sinner.casino (all available) don't have any resale value IMO, and you can totally disregard the two-word domains.

    This is the first time I have heard of the .casino extension. I saw a .vegas ranking, and was thinking of picking one up for a bingo / slots review site. $120 is high, the .vegas is $30 I think? I may look into one of the two the next time I build a new site, but I have my hands full so no more domains for me!

    He probably meant that people are so used to .com/.net/.org that it will take a long time, possibly lifetime, for people to start accepting these new extensions in their mind.

    I know .co is working fairly well and some others like .guru are also ranking well for a few terms already. Also agree about the fact that it's probably worthless unless it is a 1 premium word name.

    I think it's too long of an extension, and aside from the auto-fill, people just won't type in xxx.casino. So from a branding/repeating visit standpoint, it'll be a disadvantage.

    You hand people your business card and they laugh because you forgot the "m", they assume it is an error and they correct it for you when emailing you. That's what I've heard.

    There's this guy who had a TV ad for an .info domain, and in the ad he actually spent 5 seconds to say "not website.com, website.info."

    .us isn't popular in the US at all.

    That's how dominant .com is in the minds of visitors. And as far as all new domains are concerned, I'd take the despised .info instead, any day of the week. For 2.99. And that's how poor the new domains are IMHO.

    Exactly I emailed my hosting support the other day about an error adding .co domain, they emailed me back telling me to add it again this time with the correct spelling of .com :/

    I had a .Guru never ranked for the keyword "guru" any better than a .com it's more of a novelty than a SEO helping domain

    I do think they will be a huge succes as already nearly 6 million of the New gTLDs have been sold, and on aftermarket names like vegas.club sold for 100k!!
    Can you rank them? of course you can, i think Google might even give them a litle advantage if they start to categories domains a litle more, to avoid spam, and make it easier for users to know if it is a gambling or a xxx site.

    Time will tell, but one thing is for sure i am getting some and testing them, cause if they get very popular as i think they will, i dont want get left behind.

    Never thought anyone would have a business card with their affiliate site on it lol.

    It doesn't really matter if You have an .org .co .guru or .us - they all will make money if they rank. The question is only whether there are some EM benefits left to buy these.

    Agreed on the overpriced part and .info are ranking real well, especially in a couple of local G's.

    Oh god yes... I don't know about anyone else but I get asked what I do for a living nearly every day... And every explanation only leads to more questions lol... Just about everytime I go out drinking I end up handing out my business card.


    As for the domains... I won't be buying anymore... You see very few .anythings ranking and there may be a few reasons for that. Marketing... I for one will trust onlinecaisnos.com more then I would onlinecasinos.casino

    The second is, there is no added value... I had a bunch of sites I developed over least year... I put equal time into each and out of all of them the .net .com did fairly well.. Nothing else saw ranking as strong..

    Back to who do you trust more... The real goal of seo is to get natural links (ha)... .com is going to have a much easier time then .casino - IMO

    In Phoenix there is a Real Estate show called, and I kid you not this is their slogan "ThatRealEstateShow.CO - We couldn't afford the M".. Its a very popular show on the radio... But if you ask me it sounds... Cheap..

    Yesterday almost got binary.trade domain, which is going to be a blast in future for sure - but I was late

    .casino I think is not worth it, if you are not running casino or you got a domain like bonuses.casino, other than that it will be long and ugly domain.

    I'd buy nevada.casino or newjersey.casino but not ohio.casino, for example. I'd buy riverboat.casino but not steamboat.casino.

    I don't think I'm buying any .casino domains. Can't find the one that's worth the money. With the price nearing $200, you can already purchase some good .com domains with that.

    it seems to be getting out of hand for these domain extensions, there are .guru and all kinds - will people really remember them? I think its best to stick with TLD. I've seen some .me rankings but apart from that its always been .com or .co.uk or .org, net etc...

    The issue with using new domain extensions is anyone can have a premium domain as they are new, with .com's the people get the premium domains usually are established in the industry and have more money to spend.

    If I was to get one it would be for an investment to try and resell in a few years time, I don't think I've seen any new domain extension which has been effective at SEO in comparison to .co.uk or .com (or the other main ones)
