.COM Domains Market Share In First Page Google Rankings

Recently, I did a study of how important domain extensions like .com, or more specifically, how common they appear in Google search engine results. These numbers are derived from tens of thousands of tests, which is a sample size large enough to consider this data fairly accurate.The data was gathered from a server IP based in France. However, this didn’t have much of an effect on the results as only 0.5% of the first-page results came from .fr domains.

I found that out of tens of thousands of results, 79.9% of the first page results were from .com domains. As for the .net extension, 1.17% came from .net domains. The .org extension held much of the remaining share left behind from the .com domains with a 9.6% market share in the SERPs. Now the .info domain is where a big answer is shown. Only 0.07757% of the results were .info domains. This really explains how useless .info domains are when it comes to SEO.

When I looked at just top 3 results, 78.497% of the domains were .com.

This data was gathered by Josh MacDonald via Python scripting on December 20, 2014. Anyone who wishes to use this data, please pay respect and give credits to this page.

How to Build a Simple Viral Social App on a $0 Marketing Budget

Back in September, I was starting out in mobile development. I knew eventually I wanted to get into social apps. While I had the technical knowledge, I wasn’t quite ready to jump on something of large scale. I wanted to test some theories on a small scale. Coming from a small town, I thought they were the perfect audience, so I decided to build something for them. I knew if I built the right kind of app, it would easily go viral, even if I just sent it to 3-4 people. While people have thought the era of “Facemash” or “Hot or Not” type websites died, I decided to give it a run to see if I could prove people wrong. With the right well-connected, opinionated audience, I thought it could be replicated. However, it can’t be a website like Facemash as that will never catch on in this day and age. Snapchat, Uber, and Instragram only had their intense growth because they were on mobile platforms. So I knew building a website wasn’t going to be needed for this. This clip may jog your memory:
