Hi.

Very new here and loving the discussions !
I have a quick question which may have been asked before so I apologise if it has!

I'm starting a new beauty / fashion blog as a hobby and wondered which type of domain I should be getting...
Both .com and .co.uk are available for the name I would like to purchase so why would I pick one or the other?

How did you decide? The blog will be in English but there is no local content as such and would be just as good a read for someone in Aus as it would be for someone in the UK?

Does it have significant impact on google rankings?

Thanks

I would say it makes no difference on google rankings so if you can get both then I would do

if the content is global then I would use the .com and set up a www-forward for the .co.uk one to the .com address

Thanks Jon. I will get both and see how I get on. The domains are not expensive.
Great forum btw!
