Thumbs up Corelation Between Domain Extensions And Ranking

i started 2 SEO campaigns, one with .com extension and other with .co extension. .COM site started showing rank in search results, whereas .co still not ranking.
both sites are equal in competition and efforts put on both are equal.

Why wasting your efforts on two domains - why not four? I mean its better to get your focus on single domain and then work on other.

Google is smart so you need to be smarter.

Default Be careful of Google duplicate content penalty

If you created the .com domain and site first, then did the .co domain and copied the info from .com to .co your .co domain may be hit by the Google duplicate content penalty (part of Panda). In other words the first site with the info would show and the second one would be considered duplicated content and would not show.

Don't worry about the extension, Google doesn't care. Worry about the content. You can create multiple domains for different content, but you really only need one domain per topic.
