    From what I have read, the age of the WEBSITE is a factor, but not necessarily the domain. In other words if you have a 10 year old domain that has been parked the whole time and then you put a website on it, the age of the domain is not going to help you. The search engines will see that as a new website, regardless of how old the domain is. Similarly, lets say you had a domain with a small personal blog on it for 10 years and someone comes along, buys it and puts on all new content. The age of the domain will not be a significant factor because the search engines will view it as essentially a new site.

    On the other hand, if you had a 10 year old site on cruise travel and someone bought it, left your content and began to steadily add content on the cruise industry, tripling the size of the website over a 6 month period, I think it is likely that the age of the website (again, not the age of the domain as such) would play in your favor.

    Of course, the search engines will never tell us how any of the 200 or so factors affect their algorithm, so whether the age of the website is a significant factor is really only a guess.

    domain age is one of the factor that affecting the SERP. It will be better if you can get an age domain with good keyword. However, the keyword inside the domain is actually more important compare to age domain

    Yes it is. Domain age may refer to your websites' credibility, history, and old incoming and outgoing links to that domain. But - it still remains a small part of the many signals that big G uses in determing the SERP for websites.

    This is answer I found, http://www.seomoz.org/blog/age-of-si...teboard-friday

    Sure, age maybe possibly could play a small part, but as Rand will show you in the following video, we're nearly 100% sure it's generally not something you should worry about.
    Generally domain is like shop, when a shop operate for long time, it get more referral customer and reputation compare to the new shop. But the age of the shop is not a big concern, the most important is their services and product.

    Age domain rank well, because they have accumulate great backlink and reputation, so they gain more referral traffic and market brand. User recognize brand, so they revisit the site. Age domain itself does not play an important role to rank a site.

    I must say thats a great way to think of it, people forget that word of mouth can be important for a site.

    The answer is yes that domain age is an important SEO factor for your Google ranking. Among the hundreds of weighting factors that Google considers in determining how to rank search engine results is the age of your domain. But itís the matter that how many links and how long your domain seeing yin the search engines. If your domain is 5 ears old and has no-good backlinks then its like as the domain which you purchase yesterday.

    The age of the domain is usually a sign whether or not a site is yesterday's news or tomorrow's popular site. There are many factors that affect the ranking of a website, among them domain age is very important.
    Two things that are considered in the age of a domain name are:
    • The age of the website
    • The length of time a domain has been registered
    SEO professionals paint a pretty clear picture that an older domain age competes for rankings a bit better.

    If domain age is very important, why facebook can rank better than Myspace and Friendster? Domain age only tell how the site operate, it gain a bit more trust than newly setup site. If search engine result can be influence by age domain, then none of the webmaster willing to register and build new site.

    good point. I think its just keyword optimization that matters to rank in SERPS.

    Pretty much right off the bat. The domain age just tells how old the site is, I have seen newly made sites ranking good compared to other sites with are much older to them.

    If your site is a blog, the older the domain, the more posts you have to be taken by search engines. That is if you post on it regularly and you optimize your content for search engines.

    You are rite, this article mention it. http://www.v7n.com/keyword-descriptive-domains.php

    "Monster.com is #1 for the search term Jobs and that site doesn't use the word Jobs in the domain. If they can do it, so can I!"
    If age domain is shortcut to rank, I am sure none of us going to discuss page rank, link building, on page SEO. Buy the age domain will do.

    Domain age is one of the factor that affecting the SEO.If you are having an old domain namethat adds more credibility to your search engine rankings.
    especially google gives more importance to domain age.
    You can look at this site whoisxy.com. you can gather the information of the domain name creator
    and owner of the domain name also it displays the information of the domain name that is when is expired & created. Its a easy way to find the age of domain name..
