.google actually is a valid top level domain (or top level zone), as is '.youtube'. Google applied for those TLDs a long time ago... successfully as we can now see. Google can now further delegate authority within that zone and com.google and other subdomains (or delegated zones) can become valid and be operated. Here's a news article on zdnet about this ...

The How... In the past few years icann opened up applications for custom GTLD names, you can take a look at application statuses on the ICANN website. Expect to see many new company names as gTLD in the next few years such as .bbc,.foodnetwork,.hilton etc. Sadly these scheme was only for the super rich or big corps with buckets filled with 100 dollar bills. ...

Duplicate pages (regardless of domain) frustrates users. Imagine if google's duplicate content penalty was never in place. If a user searched for a term and found it on one of your sites, then your second site will be listed underneath it. If the user did not like the first entry, surely, there will be some sadness because the next entry is the duplicate of ...

Yes. You have a problem. gTLDs and ccTLDs are treated differently in where they are placed. gTLDs enjoy great penetration throughout all of Google's data centers while ccTLDs do not. The reason is simple and two fold: one, language- Is the language understood within the region?; and two, search history- Has anyone searched and a result given been successful ...

If these domains are the same where two are, aliased to, or parked under the one main domain, then yes. Aliased or Parked domains are domains that you own, but which do not contain any content. Instead, they point to the contents of another domain or subdomain on your account. This means the index page is the same page for all 3 of these domains. ...

It is a nicety that both www and non-www forms of a site exist. However, it is better for search that this does not happen. It is better that one 301 redirect to the other. The reason for this is simple and two fold: one, no duplicate content; and two, search metrics/prowess is not divided over the two. It is far better to have one site that performs well ...

I'm not sure about the politics/laws involved with a nation blocking a domain, but you can access the web through an HTTP proxy in Saudi Arabia to see what it looks like from that IP. I googled "saudi arabia proxy" and tried a few before I found one that worked on http://www.proxynova.com/proxy-server-list/country-sa/. I used curl on a Mac to test the proxy ...

.google is the TLD. It's similar to a .com or .net extension so there's no trickery involved.

Basically you don't need to worry about the folder part at your domain registrar because of the way hosting works. All you should concern yourself with is the IP address of the server at Enjin. At the Enjin, there server will have what we call ...

Things are changing. There's quite a few ccTLD that Google is now treating as gTLDs. And this list will keep growing IMO. You can also set country-target on Google WebMaster Tools (gTLD only feature... hopefully will get improved). Also make sure your page clearly states the language (html lang=). Google will not treat Asian languages (Japanese) as Belgian ...

Google will verify a site that is redirecting properly. I just verified a domain name that redirects to my main domain name to test it. I used the "upload file" method: example.com is my main domain name example.com/google0123456789abcef.html has been uploaded to the site example.net redirects to example.com example.net/google0123456789abcef.html ...
