    Google representatives always try and divert the issue to avoid ‘seo experts’ from gaming the algorithm.

    The new extensions will actually rank better than the .com for exact match phrases and this is already obvious.

    Lots of .travel sites do figure pretty high in the search results for even now, will be the same for new extensions.

      You’re entitled to your opinion, though I don’t think Matt would ‘try and divert the issue’, he has no need to, more likely good advice that you can follow, or ignore, per your perspective.

    The new domains that will come will take forever to make an impact.

    People still don’t get .US is American.

    Waste of money if you ask me.

      Well, I’m sure some of them will have value.

      If you could get your hands on nyc.hotel or would you pass on it?

      I’m sure someone somewhere will see value.
