So my knowledge of SEO is limited to articles online etc no formal training.

 

In NZ we still have opportunity to find descriptive domain names with the .NZ tld

 

Like carwasher.nz

 

Questions:

 

Lets say there are two domain names carwasher.nz and carwasher.xyz

 

When a person who is in New Zealand searches for a carwasher in New Zealand.

 

(Based only on the name not the construction of the site)

 

Which one would be highest up the search results?

 

I would assume it would be the .nz tld??

freitasm:

 

The .nz TLD will show up higher if using the .nz version of the search engine.

 

 

 

 

Could one surmise that if it was say someone searching outside of nz for a carwasher that the xyz would rank higher , seems obvious but....

Correct. Google will use "afinity" and try to return more .nz results to google.co.nz and .au results on google.com.au and so on...

Moz has a really good resource on international SEO

 

Key takeaways: While top level domain (.nz/.uk etc.) are important, Google uses other signals as well. Such as where your site is hosted, incoming and outgoing links for sites in the same country etc.
