    I have the opportunity to purchase a domain that is about 8 years old. Will the age factor help with ranking?

    Age is only one factor beside that also check DA/PA, TF/CF and referring domains.

    If the domain hasn't been spammed to death in the past, it'll give you a headstart over brand new domains.

    Definately helpful..but also check the age of you competitors too..i did the same mistake only to find out that my competitors domain was 16 yrs old and i had to put in a lot of extra efforts to pull him down from 1st position for my top keyword

    I havenĀ“t found old domains better in terms of ranking fast than brand new ones. But experience may vary and is also related if you repurpose the domain.
    Also this "I have one link from CNN" etc is complete BS in my experience. I bought into this again and again but I found that one backlink means shit no matter how authorative the site
