Just wondering....does the domain age still matter in seo? If so, how much does it matter?
As per my opinion the current SEO strategies is not depend more on age of the domain.
Yeah sort of i have always found older domains rank better especially if they have never had SEO done on it before
yeah that's my observation too, so is it impossible for a new domain to compete?
by the way, if old domains have seo done on them before, it actually worsens the seo?
Yeah, a new domain can compete just might take some time to move up. Depends on the SEO done on the old site. If it was shit then probably but if it was solid work then it should be fine.
Website age does hold value. In the eyes of google a website that has been around for a while is more trustworthy than the one created last week.
However on-site SEO and link building techniques can help you compete with an older website.
Domain age, meaning when was the domain first registered, doesn't mean anything.
Domain age, as in, how long has the domain been indexed, up and live does matter a lot.
Domain age, as in how long the domain has been around is NOT a signal that Google trusts. Domain age, as in how long the site has been indexed ( along with sub-pages) is NOW a secondary signal NOT carrying much weightage in terms of SEO.
Google's main focus is on current quality.
I believe the importance of Domain Age went away around the same time as Google stripped away the automatic advantage of EMDs
Mate: Domain age doesn't have any existence but the RD (Referring Domains) matters a lot in SEO.
for my opinion yes there is small factor in seo for domain age
does it mean if I get a domain that expired 5 years ago and therefore has not been in index for 5 years it is kinda powerless?
I always wonder how the hell can you people make absolutely random assumption from something completely clean. If the domain has not been indexed for 5 years, then the age strength factor is 0. That does not mean that backlink strength factor doesn't exist. Just age is screwed, not the rest. Still, ANY expired domain has ZERO age factor. Once you build it up and it gets indexed, then the age factor starts to play a role.
Old domain, that has avoided bad seo all over that time, rank so much better then young ones.
That's always true.
That's only true because of the backlink profile, not because of the age. If we are talking about expired domains.
I would really appreciate people spread this same crap all over.
Hey Nargil. I was wondering... do you think google keeps evidence of when a link was placed?
Is there a difference between an expired domain with 5 links pointing to it, and another one with no links pointing to it and adding 5 links by myself before the site gets indexed? both of them having the same age of course and they expired at the same time.
I am sure Google knows when the backlink was created. I also think that the age of backlink matters as well. And if not that, then the age of content where the backlink is placed, so by doing that, you wouldn't help yourself much.
Yes domain age is an important SEO factor for your Google ranking. Among the hundreds of weighting factors that Google considers in determining how to rank search engine results is the age of your domain — in other words, how long that domain has been around.
