    I've heard that aged domains are better in terms of getting you ranked than brand new domains. My question is I am in contention to buy a domain, however I want to check the age of the domain, and to see if the domain hasn't been penalize by google. How do I go about finding the age, and health of the domain.

    Yes, the age does count as it is marked as established because it has been around for a while. Any domain with 3 years + is good but dosent always mean that it will out rank one with only 1 year. It all depends on content and other factors

    Who is helping you to check the age of the domain and archive.org to check how the site was before .
    Check the backlinks and write at your google search bar site:the domain name , you can see the pages that google have crawled and indexed.
