I have several wedding related websites. Some I recently registered and one that is about 5 years old and has been down for about 3 of those years. I got all of them up and running and have been gathering links back to them. My question is the one that is old is a general wedding website and I have been linking to it for general wedding terms like wedding planning and wedding tips,etc. but I bought one domain for wedding chair covers and have it optimized for wedding chair covers in the domain name,the pages on the site, and the links to it. I checked my keyword ranking and discovered that the old domain that is general wedding info has the 14th listing for the keyword I was targeting on the wedding chair cover site. All that domain has is one page optimized for that keyword and an ad that steers buyers to my ecommerce site. My question is does the age of a domain matter so much that it overrides a domain that has the keyword in the domain,has pages optimized for that keyword, and has links with anchor text that are for the keyword I am targeting. I realize it could be the sandbox effect or is it that google really places that much importance on the age of the domain?
