As the title mentioned, I am talking about the age of backlinks. Up until a few weeks ago I don't pay much attention to this one thing. I was just thinking about SEO in the general and thought about what I have been doing so far, what went good and what went wrong. I noticed a few thing you probably already know: 1. Most SEO takes time before taking effect 2. Site age and authority can affect ranking. For the 1st point, I know it takes time to index links and it's not safe to spam links in a short time but then I thought, how about "backlink age", if site age can affect ranking and backlinks from aged site are considered good, then why not consider the age of backlinks? I don't have any facts or proof if the age of backlinks has effect on ranking but I personally see aged backlinks as stability factor. Just like in normal world, you may see a stable factor as something important. Example, you want to hire a good painter and you know a popular painter that has already been in the business for 10 years. Because of that 10 year and popularity you probably will trust this painter more than a newbie painter you never heard of. I think this is also what happens with aged domain/sites, it has more stability factor + more trust factor. So, I would like to know your opinion, does backlinks age affect ranking? Does backlinks as example SAPE links, will perform better after a few months?
