    .info sites

    I have noticed that there are rarely any .info sites in Google search results. Why is it so...are they not crawled

    There are lots of .info sites on google and they are crawled like every other tld. .info is a newer extension though and that's the reason you don't see as many of those on google as you see .com.

    The domain extension is irrelevant to search engine rankings. Unless you're using some strange domain that requires a special application to visit, if Google can crawl it, it can be indexed.

    especially impressive being the highly competitive keyword that this is

    The tld has nothing to do with it. It's just a matter of .info being new, and webmasters having an already established preference toward .com and .net/.org to a lesser extent.
