Some say Google will ban / penalize .us

We have a few exact match .us domains for the top keywords in our industry that we pre-ordered before .us started selling and we are considering building these out as informational sites.

Some say G will ban accounts with .us domains or flag them as spammers to watch or penalize them or some such.

What say ye?

Thanks
Slim

Thanks Lame_Wolf, and i hope you are referring to the notion of G frowning upon .us instead of commenting on the value of this extension :)

No problem, SlimKim,

I was referring to "Some say G will ban accounts with .us domains or flag them as spammers to watch or penalize them or some such."

If they got banned, it wasn't because of them having a .us website. I know a number of .us websites, and they are doing just fine. Not one of them can be seen as spammers.

Now, .info or .biz then I can see why (but no proof). They are cheap to purchase. I never even link to sites that end in .info or .biz

Keep within the rules of Adsense, and you *should* do okay.

I have on .info site, had it for a few years, it ranks very well for keywords in google and bing, plus it has adsense.

That wasn't the point I was making.

The .info sites are tempting. I considered an .info site, but though it was very cheap, and accurate - the site was informational - that was only for the first year. By year 2, the rates evened out - and as I recall, if you canceled after year 1, you still had to pay for year 2. That made me so mad that I didn't buy it, though I would have otherwise, because the site was informational.
