Google to Rank .CO As Generic TLD

.CO Internet, the registry for the recently relaunched .CO country code Top Level Domain, is pushing for the ccTLD being recognised as an alternative to .COM. Their goal has received a boost with Google agreeing to rank .CO domains as a generic Top Level Domain is their content is targeted globally and not just at Colombian internet users, according to a report in PC Pro.

“We will rank .co domains appropriately if the content is globally targeted. Webmasters will soon have the functionality to be able to specify this by using the geotargeting options in Google Webmaster Tools,” a Google spokesperson told PC Pro.
