With over 200 launches scheduled in the coming months, the New gTLD program is gaining momentum fast. One of the key questions that online marketers face is how New gTLDs will impact consumer behavior, search and SEO. To shed light on this important issue, CSC is launching a report that assesses how these new domains are being used.

CSC-New-gTLD-Utilization-Report_Oct2014It’s nearly a year now since the launch of .shababka, the first new generic top-level domain, and just a few months since .axa became one of the first New gTLD “dot brand” domains to go live. Already, there are possible indicators that .brand domains may provide ranking signals for search engines. Early observations also reveal that certain generic New gTLDs are being used and developed while others are being parked. By comparing registration volumes for New GTLD domains with Alexa rankings, CSC’s Report shows which of these new extensions may be genuinely popular and in active use.

Our report will reveal:

  • .Brands in search – highlights and observations
  • The number of New gTLDs in the Alexa Top 1M
  • The Top 10 generic New gTLDs
  • Which New gTLDs are most successfully penetrating the Alexa Top 1M
