it doesn't matter which one you'll choose as long as your content is quality and related to the searcher.

I agree with anneconque, It does n't matter whether its is .com or .net, Content and userfriendly experience is the important thing. So concentrate on content you can reach your goal.

Its more of a categorization . Most of the private company or business related should be using .com domains. If you are running a blog or personal website you could use .net extension also.

Make sure you purchase both the domains so that you could switch whenever required.

It doesn't matter you use .net or .com, Both domains are good. But .com slightly easier to remember because .com is common & mostly websites prefer first to use it.

.com and .net are both are good but mostly people prefer .com domains because when the visitor sees .com extension they feel familiar and visitors have some trust because .com domains are mostly visible in search results as compared to .net domains.
But for search engine optimization do not worry about .com and .net.

com domain is popular and become RARE today to register a desirable name.
So, people will choose alternative domain on NET, ORG.
SEO is about indexing and ranking.
As long as your site index by Google, no matter what extension is use, people can find your website.

I don't think anyone gave any clear answers but I found a blog post that is more helpful then what I would of just said.

https://youtu.be/ldFPcJZulXQ

.com has always been the most popular for many years but now new tld's are coming out and well I don't think any extension is that important. If you a good marketing and can get your blog ranked well, the extension does not matter.

.com looks great on blogs. .net looks good on forums. There are several other TLDs that suite a specific type of site.

For any blogs I think domain names doesn't matter you can choose anything whether it is .com or .net or many other countries related like .au, .in. If you created good quality of content and great in seo than your blog will doesn't want confused about domain.

I agree with you all that .com or .net does not matter (in terms of SEO at least)
What I experience is that people tend to type domain dot COM. Many times even my closed friends try to connect to my website, they put on the dot COM extension.
The dot COM really go into people's mind and habit.
So if I get an option, .COM will probably the one I go for.

There is no such thing as "better domain" its all in the perception! The usual order of choice by any internet marketer goes like -
1. They look for .com domains if that is not available then .net
2. If .net is not available then .org

.info is also a good extension however in the earlier days most spam sites had .info extension so it is of the general view that .info domains are usually avoided.
