    I have a domain that's 8 years old and only has about 1200 backlinks. I know that building brand new sites backlinks too quickly will sandbox it but what about an older domain like this? Would building say 2000 backlinks per month hurt it?

    Statix <----

    Take a look at Google's blogs and Spam team (it's well worth the time!)

    They answer this question directly and very often.

    Here is the quick version:

    -> If your site is offering the most relevant content to the search user...


    They google doesn't care how many backlinks you throw at it or how new the domain is.

    It's a term they call -> Query Deserves Freshness.

    Think about it like this...


    A natural disaster hits France and the french people no longer have wine!

    So someone starts a site called:

    Help-Send-Wine-To-France-Now.info


    --> it's an info domain (yuck)

    ---> it's got 6 words and dashes between them (yuck)

    ---> but if it really was a good site with people linking to it naturally...


    Then all the "magic" google rules go out the window.


    It will rank because:


    Of High PR links from authority sites (relevant or related content)

    Links from low PR sites ( but in a natural way)

    So if your aged domain is relevant to the new site --- then do it! ---

    Just make the links pointing to it look natural.


    Good Luck :)

    Thanks for the tips. I've added about 3000 links to it over the past 5 days and the only place it's gone is up in the ranks. It's at position 6 now with about 1200 of the links indexed according to yahoo. Maybe it will push up to the top three with this surge.
