    Does google know when the site has been registered even though its not indexed? For example bought an expired 3 years old expired domain but its not even indexed in google, does it still count as an age domain vs new? Thanks..

    Google is an ICANN certified registrar and as such they have access to the same records Enom and the rest have. They just don't offer domain registration.

    Renewed domains are not as useful as aged domains that were never let to expire but are better than new domains.

    What you got is probably a deindexed domain as it is kind of rare that a 3 year old one will not be found for the whole 3 years. Or it expired long ago.

    But is it still better of buying an expiring domain then new? For SEO reasons?

    I'm not 100% sure but one of Matt Cutts Google Webmaster videos briefly covered this and he seemed to hint that it was when Google first indexed the site that counted.
