    Just a simple question: Does the domain age carry over if I buy a domain that very recently has expired?

    If a domain is expired and deleted it has no age anymore. But if its a snapback where you buy it just as its dropped then you will keep the domain age.

    You can check the age by looking up the whois details.

    Anyway: the age of the domain has no or just a very small SEO benefit. What matters is the links to that domain and if the structure of the site changes after you buy the domain. Domains that have been parked and had no links built to them are essentially the same as a brand new domain.

    Have to disagree with this one. You gain authority with each passing month that goes by.

    Authority is a little hard to understand, but simply put and aged domain will rank higher than a younger web site if all other things are equal.

    I think, after expiry of domain its age doesn't die out.

    Expired domain means, validity of the domain for the webmaster is expired and its time to renew.
