I don't think there is anything wrong with .xyz extension but I agree with the spammer part.
I have been using this domain since a year now and i can say that even though if it is so cheap, the SEO rank is almost same.
i have some, use .xyz because cant get the .com, .net or .orgIn terms of using them in general, what use are they to you?
Since they are almost always a cheap option, I mainly scoop them up to set up sites on. I will work through themes and customization and then transfer the site over to my actual address saving down time and hassle.
there is no problem for this extension in seo,
but .com migth a little higher for exact match domain in google
Their marketing is what tanked this top-level domain. It's current rep is on par or probably even worse than .info. .XYZ used to run $0.01 registration promotions, so that flooded the registry with spammers and opportunists. To the point when top domain registrars are dropping their support for this TLD.I honestly like the .XYZ appeal as it has no distinct boundaries and represents some kind of 'revolution' in terms of domain name extensions. Perhaps it's I was simply sold by their marketing techniques.
I have one question though, - have any of you saw any XYZ website to reach good organic rankings with usual SEO tactics?
