According to Google insiders, these are not SEO ranking factors. However, if you ever took a look at the websites that show up at the top few spots on any Google search you will discover an interesting trend. About 60% of them will have a domain that is three years old and older. That’s got to mean something, right?
In simple terms, if your website has been online for a fair length of time, it’s going to get noticed by Google. Hopefully, it is because you’ve published some killer content or you’ve used a bunch of SEO tricks to get Google to visit it frequently. Domain age gives your site authority and that is a good thing.
There are online tools you can use to check what the page authority and domain authority are on your website. Essentially, if you have an old domain Google views your website as a trusted entity online. This looks even better if your website is secure and contains relevant and quality content. Got all that?
