Do some domain names extensions get a bonus for SEO?

According to Google, the extension (top left domain) of a domain name is not a parameter impacting, whether positively or negatively, their algorithms.

Even if, officially, this parameter has no impact on Google, please give priority to classic extension such as « .fr » or « .com » rather than a more exotic extension.

Please note that geographical extensions (country code top left domain) such as « .fr » or « .es » allow search engines to geolocate sites and thus offer them in the context of a search limited to one country.

Lots of SEO professionals think that some extensions have a better fame among search engines. For example, those reserved by governments or official services: .edu , .gov or .gouv.fr for France.
