    So, I'm looking at a great 8 year old domain that would work well for me, but when I go site: and info: it doesn't show up in Google.

    I'm sure this is because it isn't pointed to a landing page. However, because the domain goes no where, does this mean that the age is worthless in Google's eyes if its never been indexed?

    Basically, if Google hasn't ever indexed the domain is the Age non existent in google's eyes?

    In the sandbox. Again.
    From my understanding, the age begins when Google sees the content. If content is removed for long periods of time, the age would then reset back to zero.

    Yeah, I've heard mixed things, that's why I'm asking. So, basically, this 8 year old domain is no better than a brand new domain?

    No, here's the thing, there was never anything for Google to index. They didn't point the domain to anything..

    The domain retains it's age as long as it has never been dropped. I have used aged domains that have had content indexed and some that have not, haven't noticed a tremendous difference.

    Oh, gosh, so even though Google has never seen the age (no content ever) you still think it will be fine?

    I'm getting such mixed answers here...

    The age factor only comes into importance.... if the domain has come content as it is updated sometimes.... even if not very regularly....

    Ahhh, all you guys have different opinions... I can't afford to drop $300 on a domain if I'm not sure if the age will be there or not..

    Im kinda in the same situation with my domain I purchased. Its a 7 year old domain and its not indexed in google (which it should not be since google deindexes domains that have no website/parked pages, and I got this information directly from one of googles employees;)) so if its not indexed in google all that would mean is that it did not have a website for a while and probably was parked with the domain registers parked page (google stop indexing those once panda rolled in).

    Now I have 2 different opinions from 2 different people and I do not know exactly who is correct. But what I was told by one person is that google looks in the whois database to see when the domain was registered, now I am assuming that they would do this so that once you finally add let say a wordpress site (or any site for that matter) google would reindex the domain and then check to see if it was registered before.

    The second person told me that google would classify a domain registration date by judging the oldest backlink that is pointing to the domain (since google must have had the domain indexed at one point in time, they would have this info).

    To be honest I do not know who is correct and would appreciate if someone could shed more light on this since I really don't know who is correct.

    Interesting. I'm still wondering if I should buy this domain... there is no consensus on this issue.
