The first batch of new gTLDs became available today, as the first of many new domain extensions go live.
Hundreds of new domain designations are available.
For search marketers, one of the main questions is whether Google will rank websites with the new extensions favorably. Some other TLD’s have not fared so well in terms of Google rank, all other SEO considerations being equal.
Another question is whether consumers will readily recognize, remember, and visit sites with such different domain name extensions?
