    If new tlds had better CTR's then it would be very clear because SEM people would be using them in paid advertising, they'd be at the top of every second page.

    The statement sounds accurate to me and would apply to any extension. It is not exactly a big claim.

    The LinkedIn post is a disgrace though, many false claims. Is it yours?

    Can you explain this in more detail:
    "Contrary to popular belief around here, i have seen some positive organic movement when moving clients to .melbourne & .sydney domains."

    1. What did they move from.
    2. Why did they move.
    3. What effort was put into the SEO etc after the move which had not been done before
    4. What was the cost, time etc.
    5. What is your evidence for this claim "nTLD's do tend to achieve better CTR's when it comes to organic search - which is definitely a ranking factor".
