Posted at 12:00h in Search Engine OptimizationRecently Matt Cutts was quoted in an article on Search Engine Watch. He spoke about how people are registering domain names with extensions different than .com to try and manipulate the search engines. However they are using other country extensions. It's an interesting thought and he dispels the myth that it actually works. This brings up a common question that I get asked on a regular basis: "If I register 5 different domain names, ones with industry terms, will that help me rank better on Google?". The answer is both yes and no.
