    He doesnt specifically say much about aged domains. He kinda sidesteps the question and talks about how long the domain is registered for.

    Some benefits of older domains is they may already be Indexed. So if you have a project that you want to start now that relies on being Indexed an older domain would be ideal. Although on the other hand, my recent project only took 3 days for me to get Indexed. Just like he suggests though worry about your content, in the end that will help you the best.

    Yes TermsB, aged domains just help you index faster, that's all. But if you want RANKING, it doesn't help anything. PR = SHIT also ;) I don't care much about PR.

    Another problem of Aged domains is someone was doing blackhat (short-term tactics) with his domain and he throw away his domain because of blacklisted :p and maybe we will be a victim if we buy these domains.

    Domain age isn't THE factor but i wouldn't heavily discount it like Matt says to do so and purely focus on content.

    Imagine the value and authority domains that are 10 years + old must now carry. Now look another 20 years in the future. Imagine how hard it's going to be to start a new site and go up against a 20-25 year old rock.

    the other benefit of "used" domains is that they often have backlinks to em already

    The adage 'old is gold' still holds true. Yes of course factor quality content into the equation.

    My findings are that for the six months to the first year you will find it hard to go up against the older domains - even if your content is better, but after a couple of Google updates, you'll start outranking the older sites.

    You will get there.

    I buy aged domains that already have traffic coming to them and put up a new website related to that domain. I can either make money from Adsense clicks, affiliate sales or just flip it for profit. People love to buy sites that already have traffic and it might sell for a couple of hundred dollars. Not a lot of money but it's fast and easy.

    Can anyone share a link to a free aged domain name finder please :) I have been using one for .co.uk which is pretty good but I want to expand it to .org and .net (assuming .com has been pillaged already)

    Cheers
