    I just buy a new website domain and I see with whois that it was registered before:
    NS History:23 changes on 12 unique name servers over 6 years.
    IP History:20 changes on 13 unique IP addresses over 7 years.
    Whois History:24 records have been archived since 2009-11-19.
    Created:2012-03-22
    Expires:2013-03-22

    My question is: Google see it like a new domain or an old age domain?

    The answer is "BOTH". Unless you picked up the domain within 24 hours of it being dropped, for SEO purposes your domain has lost all of it's age (and PR) and is considered "brand new".

    However, since Google is an official domain register, they can see the entire history of that domain, what it's been used for, who has owned it, and if it's been sandboxed, etc...

    So if it's been deindexed, there is no guarantee that it is not still deindexed. You can file an appeal, but you cannot ever use that domain name for the same purpose that it used to have, if it was deindexed.
