So, say I purchase a brand new
example.app. I want to redirect all traffic reaching
example.app (i.e. the
.com is a pure redirect).
Does that have any impact on SEO?
Note 1: I'm asking as many (most/all) SEO gurus say that you're expected to have a
.com and the other extensions do not get as high a ranking from Google. So I'm wondering whether I should make the
.com the official site and redirect the
.app to the
.com (which in a way would be rather sad).
Note 2: Some background, I'm developing an Android app (and later I'll have an iPhone clone) and I think that using the
example.app makes a lot more sense.
