National and international domains in Google

 6:07 am on May 24, 2004 (gmt 0)

Does anybody know if Google give international domains an advantage? I have a .no domain and the link operator only shows .no domains? I have a PR8 .com site linking to me but I can't see it?

Is my .no domain ranked equal to .com domains?

Velkommen til WebmasterWorld! How long have you had that link? My own experiences do not suggest that international domains have an advantage, but other members may know better.

The PR8 link has been there only one week or so but Google has spidered this site and have cached it. Also, Altavista are showing it.

Then I don't think there is any reason to worry. Eventually the link will be shown and will count.

It's too soon for that link to be showing; give it a month or so to show. The country specific domain may help in showing up for country-specific search, but shouldn't make a difference otherwise.

And welcome to WebmasterWorld!
