    I have a 3 year old website that I need to renew the domain name for. I would like to register with privacy settings to make it more difficult for people to find me. If I renew this domain name with privacy setting is this going to decrease my serps???

    No, it will have no effect on your SERP.

    No, it will not affect anything. All it will do is hide your personal details.

    Privacy is not related with your domain age. It is just a procedure to hide your deatils from the public. No skyrocket science.
