    So for a couple of months, my rankings have suffered because a few other websites have outranked me. I was really confused why. I looked at their backlinks and the #1 site has like 100 garbage backlinks. so I was really scratching my head "WTF is going on?" Then I decided to check domain age.
    It seems that the algorithm gives more value to domain age now. site #1 was made in 1998. ranking #1 for a very competitive keyword just because of age?

    Since I plan to launch some more websites soon, I am wondering are new websites screwed simply because they are new?

    Unless you have a way into editing settings from the registrar, it ain't possible bud. Not sure the age is the only thing affecting your competitions authority in the serps.

    I've heard that you can redirect old domains to your website to increase it's age, as though the site has moved. For example, if you're buying a new domain, buy an old domain from Godaddy auctions for $10 and redirect it to your new domain.

    Just buy old domain at $10. Here you have a very old domain.

    Domain age is probably one of the few things that can't be manipulated.
