    Hello, I buy a domain 6 years ago, I have not paid for 5 years so it 's no longer mine. I see I can buy $ 10 (price of a new domain).

    1-If I buy the domain will be considered as new or old?
    2-Is it still important to have the keyword in the domain name

    Best

    i) It will be considered as a new domain.

    ii) Exact match domains are no longer helpful as they once were. This does not mean that you should necessarily avoid keyword domains, but, it does mean that keywords shouldn’t be the primary factor you consider while choosing a domain. So, you should focus on choosing a brandable domain. Because, Google likes brands.
