There’s a new search engine out there that apparently has ditched the legacy .COM, .NET and .ORG TLDs (Top Level Domains) and only show New gTLDs in its search results. Using Google’s Custom Search Engine, Newgle has done what no other search engine has ever done before: only show search results from websites on New gTLD domain names. Newgle is a new search engine using Google Custom Search that takes the legacy TLDs out of the search results.
There has been quite the controversy regarding the New gTLDs, these new domain name extensions amongst the Search Marketing community lately, as many traditional SEOs don’t understand the power of having the keyword in the ending of the domain name. I have personally done lots of PPC research, and even some SEO-related research regarding websites and rankings. Frankly, I do believe that the data is there to support the fact that a website that uses a new domain extension, especially a keyword rich domain with a keyword-appropriate ending, works.
In case you missed it, I wrote an SEOs guide to the New gTLD domain names.
Newgle is the first search engine that I’ve seen only use the New gTLDs in its results. It is interesting to searches there for popular keywords such as “insurance” or “real estate” and see the search results. Granted these are Google search results, but without the .COM, .NET, and .ORG websites in the results. What I find interesting is that I’m having trouble finding an actual search result that has nothing in it–no results. To me, it looks like there are more plenty of good, decent sites showing up when I search.
