I have a domain that has been setting here for 3 years. It has no backlinks and has been doing nothing for the 3 years.

I have built a site on it now but would the no activity for the domain be treated as a new domain by google even though it's 3 years old?
 
Domain age is counted irrespective of the activity. Even if you park a domain permanently for 10 years without any activity on it, it would still be counted as 10 year old.

That great news because I have 9 domains which are 9 years old.
All had sites for the first 6 years now looking to use them again:)
 
It will be better then new domain but I don't think better then active domain with roughly same age... Age helps in ranking but then there are lots of other factors also...
 
I think age only helps if that site has been indexed.

For example: a 9 year old domain that originally got indexed 9 years ago will hold a lot of value to it.

On the other hand a 9 year old domain that literally had nothing on it and Google doesnt know about will probably hold very little value.
 
i agree with the above opinions but you must also keep in mind that if the domain has had archives as well,that would be great.
