    Article published by Ahrefs gives us some interesting insider data on how long it takes to rank and the correlation between ranking and age.

    https://ahrefs.com/blog/how-long-does-it-take-to-rank/

    Post your comments here and tell us about your personal experience.

    Does this mean that when we purchase aged domains we should keep the original page urls as well and rebuild them with our unique content?

    How much age we can retain if the page url is the same but the content is fresh? Also will this correlate with the fact that regularly updated pages rank better.

    Interesting... age (both in post and links) has always been a factor but this shows that it may be more so these days.

    Message from Firefox: "This page isn't redirecting properly." "Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete."

    It is fairly well known that if you buy an expired domain, then you should attempt to recreate the URL's with new content.

    So if you want to rank in the top 10 in one year it will take 2-6 months.

    Aren't older pages going to have more seo done on them to rank better?
