    I want to start a new site. For the keyword I selected there is one domain available (.org) and the .com is for sale. The .com domain is 10 months old but is not indexed in google.

    Is it worth spending an extra 50$ on this 10 month aged domain?
    Does it matter if the domain name was not indexed in google?

    Edit: My goal is to increase pr fast and I noticed that with aged domains pr increases faster. But since the .com was not indexed in google and is only 10 months old idk what to choose.

    Thanks,
    Spanic

    I learned through trial and error with many domains.

    - Domain age doesn't mean shit.

    SEO has nothing to do with the domain age. Just the content and the resources linking to it.
    If you wanna talk SEO, then UNTIL WHEN the domain is registered might give you an edge with google. It tends to rank long term registered domains better.

    And of course, if you buy an aged domain, 10 months is nothing in terms of age.

    Edit - so for Pagerank. (Just look at all the autoblogs out there.. There are some PR3-4 registered for less than 1 year and less).

    I have noticed that older domains seem to be able to absorb a higher number of backlinks without any crazy bouncing around in the serps. However I would not pay the extra $50 for two reasons. First the domain is not indexed and that would take away most of the age benefit and second 10 months is not really an aged domain. If the domain was a couple of years old and had been indexed the whole time then it may be worth the extra cost if you are in a hurry.
