    Hi guys, i been struggling to keep my pages on top of google. But whenever am researching new keywords i seem to find ( once in a while ) and aged domain. Not an emd, just aged with PR 2> and a handful of backlinks .

    I have become interested in this trend and have gone through the aged domain domination wso.

    However, i would like to know how what i can and cannot do with an aged domain.

    Must i rebuild some of the old content. How fast can i build links .

    Thanks -- please feel free to add more information, am sure other member will benefit from your advice.

    I think you need the old site's site structure (URLs) for sure but I'm not sure if you need to copy all the old content. Needs to be on same type of niche though usually.

    The page structure wouldn't count much for a PR2 domain. If it was a PR6-7 there would be a debate but that's unfortunately not the case.

    You have to build backlinks and make sure your content is good for your niche. An aged domain is definitly an asset, but that's not a reason to go crazy on backlinks, stick with link diversity and set a rythm for it. Make sure to link your inner pages. Google allows changes otherwise we all would be using HTML1 to build websites.

    I think you should just get a new domain and migrate your contents. That would be easier. And make sure you do the proper optimization techniques for the new domain.

    Why wouldn't you use an aged domain if you had it? lol

    Anyways, to OP: I would install Wordpress and add a redirect plugin, to funnel all of the link juice from the inner pages (which no longer exist) to your root domain, build out your new pages, and link to your new inner pages and root domain. That's just me though, been working well for my aged sites that I picked up and rebuilt.
