    Greetings all,

    Please help with these questions.

    Besides the actual domain registration date which is over 4 years old.

    For example, I have 10 plus domains with the KW's of a travel destination for condos and hotel rentals but they are not the best keyword type domains.

    Given a choice, would a "ok" KW domain be better that is over 4 years old or a new one with on target domain .co TLD. Which one would be better?

    Finally, does a domain age matter if it is offline? Meaning no site or nameserver ever was used for the domain. Does google see it as being a more valid domain than a new .co?

    Thank you for those who choose to help me by answering these mixed up questions.

    I had the same dilemma not too long ago, it is said that if the domain wasnt indexed at all then it might as well be new, and thats true to some degree. I personally went with my older domains with "less quality keywords" but older domains 4-7 yo
