+Marcus Tober I just read your econsultancy piece with interest.

Did you check to see if any of the new .berlin websites had previously been published and ranked? Presumably many of these sites had been on .de .com etc, so where did the previous domains rank prior to moving over to .berlin?

It would be great to know a little more about the methodology, and how the claim "gTLDs rank better, at least for local searches" can be supported?

Will gTLDs help you rank higher in search results?
The range of generic top-level domains (gTLDs) is expanding to include new options such as .Hotel, .RealEstate and .Berlin.

  1. FWIW I just realised I had asked about this on the Searchemtrics blog (DE), and they did respond:

    "We just looked at the rankings and did no further analysis of any onpage (like redirects) or offpage factors for now. This analysis is supposed to be an initial examination of the local rankings compared to non-local rankings on a domain basis. Maybe we expand our analysis next time. Thanks for the input!"
