Would a new site on an old dot com outrank an already established dot net domain

Hi,

Just wondering would putting a site on an old dot com domain (And with a bit of backlink building) outrank an already established dot net domain with lots of backlinks? (Both are the exact same domain name)

Any info appreciated

If it's the exact same site, I don't think it matters much in terms of ranking. If the site is already established on the .net domain, just forward the .com to that.

The fast answer is no -- the second the overall content of the .com is changed, it's ratings/rankings will essentially go out the window.

It's links will change and/or break, the external references will no longer be relevant to it, etc...

It's better to just SEO your way up on a purpose-built domain.
