The World's Worst TLDs

Most of these will not make the serps for quality and content reasons. But if you type it in, they are alive ... and do so at your own peril.

Don't forget you can query entire TLDs with a site: search, e.g.

site:download [google.co.uk]

Now seeing bad bots arriving referencing .xyz domains, as if xyz wasn't an ugly thing all by itself.

Damn, you Alphabet! Lending even the slightest legitimacy to that gawdawful string is cringeworthy! Toss off the yoke before it pulls you under!

There . . now . . I'm feeling better already . .
