Does google take into account if a site has a url of .com rather than .me or .cc or .mobi or any other ending?

Hi marcelo

Not necessarily, although a ? isn't ideal because it indicates that a site is dynamic and might be changing it's content (that's something Google doesn't like)

There's a long, official explanation here from Google: support.google.com/webmasters/answer/76329?hl=en

Notice that a lot of those bad examples include ?

Steve, i appreciate your saving time, give it straight answering style.
I wish all OS training chat staff would follow the same style. Sometimes
they keep exchanging e-mails back and forward several times to get a simple
question answered (and once i end up just giving up) specially when it is a
coding question.
Thank you Steve.
Happy New Year

You're welcome, marcelo

I apologize about the other answers, although sometimes I do that myself if I'm not sure of the situation.

This one was easy ... avoid ? whenever possible.
