Nowadays, more important than the extension is to follow the best practices for SEO from the beginning, like create great content and extensive, at least 2000 words. Take care of your website speed. Spend more time on the introduction so that you can create killing ones and make your audience to keep reading. Taking care of your dwell time (the amount of time your audience in on your website), to name a few.
