    I'm just wondering if I have just had a stroke of luck.

    I recently bought a domain for my main business website. Shortly after purchasing it, I relaised that it had previously been used....but obviously expired.

    When I look in marketsamurai it thinks my domain is 7 years old.

    Just wondered if this is likely to help in terms of Google in any way?

    i say yes, but i heard somewhere that if a domain is allowed to expire then google
    resets it and treats it like a brand new domain.

    Only time will tell
