I'd go with .com when you can and .net is usually my second choice. Ultimately, it probably does not matter much in terms of SEO in the long run.

There is no difference from an seo standpoint with either .com or .net.

But from a user standpoint, you are better off going with .com because people are so much more familiar with it. Go with .com.

Its not too matter in seo now, but .com domain built high user trust compared to .net, .biz, .info and other domains.

I dont think that people care that much anymore but from a vanity point of view go for the .com

The .com suffix is more popular than .net, which is second in popularity. But again you need to know if your site is worthy to take that domain suffix. .Com stands for commercial while .net stands for network.

Dot com is more commonly used (a lot of older and more established sites are using) but in terms of seo I don't think it makes any difference.

I dont think it matters in the long run. They should be weighted the same. However I think having a subdomain would affect your rankings though. For example if you a domain like http://example.com and a subdomain http://blog.example.com, then that sub domain will be treated like whole new one.

There is no different between .com and .net on SEO, but it is a big different for visitor/human, since people usually think website is using .com.
