TLD Domain Selection
Some regional based search engines or indexes prefer listing sites which are registered in their country code. If your site exclusively or primarily caters to a specific country then you will most likely want to register a domain using the local country code. Some search engines show websites in regional based search results if your site is hosted within that country or have your address and phone number in the page text but extremely picky ones, look for the regional domains. As search progresses localization of results will become more common. Buying.com version of your domain and forwarding it to the regional domain you registered is a better idea.
