    “The top apps on the market are already using the .app domain as the home for their application on the web”

    The desperate sales pitch begins.

    Googles claim is accurate, it is the LinkedIn post by someone else that is dodgey.

    read a post by someone offering new top-level domain (TLDs). They made this claim: "Will a new TLD web address automatically be favoured by Google over a .com equivalent? Quite simply, yes it will."

    Sorry, but that's just not true, and as an engineer in the search quality team at Google, I feel the need to debunk this misconception

    Basically this linkedin author has taken a statement by Google than means very little and tried to drum it up into something it is not.

    Yes a .app domain could help an app get discovered. Putting a sign around your neck and walking around the streets could also help an app get discovered. Funny how these registrar related people will latch on or skew just about anything.

    btw: despite this person claiming to be in "content marketing", they actually work for 101domain, they are one of the worst for telling porky pies about new tlds,

    The study is flawed as it claims tlds have a benefit. Google has stated they do not. What they are possibly seeing is a slight EMD benefit which has nothing to do with extension.

    Or you could post links to 12 yo conspiracy articles that bear no relevance to the initial premise of this thread. TLDs do not help rankings. I thought SEOS were meant to be the snake oil salesmen.
