Unfortunately, most of the .com domains are taken so often we're forced to get clever using different country codes.

For instance, suppose I registered the following domains (which are probably already owned by someone, so this is just for the sake of example):

  • awesome.af
  • network.io
  • linked.in
  • who.ru
  • sandwi.ch
  • brand.nu
  • radio.fm

How does this affect SEO as far as Google is concerned?

Could I get the same sort of ranking out of brand.nu as I could out of brand.com?
