    Aged domains are valuable because of their pagerank and google gives them preference in the serps if I could get my hands on a bunch of those domains with computer spun content I could make some serious money but obviously aged domains are taken they are not free and they cost a lot of money.
    maybe if I could do some parasite hosting on those domains I could get pass that problem:) but how can I do that?

    u kiddin me? u can buy an aged domain with PR on DP or Namepro for as low as 20 bucks

    I have a collection myself and believe me, If wanted one of my aged domain to be used for a product promotion, it only takes me weeks before it gets high rankings.

    Aged domains are a must arsenal in SEO

    A lot of people on DP just buy domains on tdnam and then resell on DP. So it is often cheaper to just use tdnam.

    There is also a very important consideration when purchasing aged domains, once a transfer takes place they lose their age! I just did a whois on a domain I had registered in 1996 and sold in 2007 and it results as:

    Record created on 18-APR-2007

    I use tdnam which is an auction type site that you get to through godaddy. You can get old/expired domains for cheap and they definitely are a better idea for seo purposes than a new domain.

    I've always wondered about that as well. You can search by when the site was first spidered which gives the originating age, but I do not know which age is taken into account by SE. If anyone has more info, please let us know.

    They lose their record age but not aged as far as search engine indexing.. What you want are INDEXED aged domains..

    rjhere is right... you need an aged domain that is visible in serps, and not just laying around with nothing on it for years.

    With the right content, aged domains can make a fortune.

    Home Page:
    I got 'several' domains from TDNAM and all get reindexed and perform quite fast.
    Too fast actually and with no links except their legacy.

    And the domain Creation Date is maintained when you get it from TDNAM.

    Ok heres a kicker, I would like some opinions on this.

    Whats better?

    A new domain with the keywords your trying to rank for in them.

    Or

    An aged domain that has none of your keywords but is somewhat relevant to your content.

    Also at what point does a domain become "aged"? I have a few that are over a year old but I dont know if those would be at the point of being aged yet.
