ranking .pro (again) SEO and SE ranking of .pro Chilperich sorry Gentlemen that I excavate the thread about .pro Domains, last message was on Feb. 7 2010. Please excuse my English, it is very rusty. I am a 60 year old domainer for fun from Germany. First a few words about .pro: Of course we can not compare it with a .com. But we all know most really interesting generic key are registered at cno and ccTLD. And at least in Germany .pro is not the worst compensation. In the thread I am referring to, was a great discussion about what .pro stands for. Wiki says: [ ...] en.wikipedia.org So like in the other countries .pro stands for professional. But like the .me (ccTLD) for Montenegro, where the most Domains are registrated because of the English >> me << pro has another meaning. In Germany ( German speaking countries) we say >> Pro und Contra << what means pros and cons or >> for and against << And now .pro makes sense. CleanEnergy.pro OldAgePension.pro Ecar.pro … A few days ago I registrated a .pro domain with the German generic term for German/German (exact) (for an English word with exact match> 40k and US $ 8,14 CPC! <The domain> sounds not bad. Yesterday I offered the domain to one of the leading companies in this multi million business. They would pay me a really good price (the .com is available for 60k Euro or so) if … Therefore I ask: Has someone experience with the ranking of .pro? Sure, it will be more expenditure than with a ccTLD or a .com, but … @ user zuratv on Feb 7 2010 >> -.pro ranking =great, no problems! - .pro SEO Super! much better then, idiotic3-4word.com!))) << >> [edit reason] Per Domain Forum Charter we don't allow members to mention their domains [/edit] << thanks for reading C [ edited by: Webwork at 2:07 pm (utc) on Aug 28, 2010] [edit reason] Mostly we avoid mentioning specific domain names or their equivalent translations [/edit]
Hello Chilperich. Willkommen to WebmasterWorld and to the Domain Forum. I don't know anyone who has successfully undertaken the task of "ranking a .pro website". I suspect the task of ranking a .pro domain is similar to ranking a .biz or .mobi or .travel domain, which also rarely appear as Web addresses in the SERPS. Probably because so few are ever developed. Most folks who actually develop websites - especially in competitive markets - know that there is a bit more involved in "pulling rank" than having a keyword domain . . though having an exact-match domain isn't a bad thing. However, in competitive SERPs - such as finance, education, insurance, medications - it's ranking business as usual: link profile, etc.
thank you, Webwork Meanwhile I sent a email to the PR Lady of Encirca: >> Hello Kate, how is the ranking on SE for .pro? Can you tell me 2 or 3 .pro which are in the TopTen at their key? << I'm curious about the answer They offer the 2nd lev .pro for $ 14,95 now, therefore one can test the ranking on a nichekey This press release is from April: www.seopressreleases.com/encirca-upgrades-findpro-directory/7673 C
