should an 'aged' domain fear the Mighty Sandbox?

    I just bought a 5 years-old domain for a niche I found yesterday, and I was wondering how much blasting it could take before google would send it to the 'playground'?

    I've read a report saying that 'aged' domains (4 years or more) can take any amount of blasting without fearing penalties; same for a new domain that's 'hidden' behind a new 301'd .info ... what do you guys think?
    ever experimented with this?

    No you are misinformed. Just because a site is "aged" does not mean you can blast it to sh!t and not have any penalties.

    An aged domain may give you a head start in ranking stuff, but it is not immune from penalties.

    You see for some big money terms they just blast it to shit and rank a few time on page 1. Surely does work for a limited time, how the exactly technquie is I don't know.

    Depends how old that book was Narcisa. A long time ago in a galaxy far away that trick worked.

    Please don't try that now tho, won't get you far.

    Just use quality backlinks and spam the shit out of the tier 3 or 4 ;)

    From my personal experience


    13+ years domain I was ranking page 1 for competitive keyword ( 12k exact monthly searches) with 2 articles and barely any backlink


    By this point I tho i was golden but the truth is far from it


    I was stupid enough to do a SB blast to the site but guess what I was ranking even higher for months
    So I did another blast right before the uodate and boom I went from #1 to nowhere

    Oh that sucks ! :( sorry for you!
    what a coincidence, though, the main keyword phrase I'm targeting has 12k monthly searches, too !
    thanks for the heads up, guys!

    If the domain has got solid backlink profile along with its age, then it may get your inner pages ranked highly.

    Why is everyone only thinking of link bombarding their sites instead of building high quality long-term links?
    i can't understand that..

    Jcpenny has a 15 year old domain and they still got penalized a while back. The age of the domain is irrelevant, it's the link sources that matter.

    The age should not matter, but yes, I believe a 1 year old domain should get deindexed sooner than a 10 year old domain (point is, they all do) if you try to do shit with it..

    As other people have said above, that might have worked in the past and might still work but is that worth the risk? You can try it out yourself if you believe yes.

    Or choose the harder and the smarter way, start building high quality authority backlinks.
