    Hi!
    Why domain (not site) age is matter?
    Why everybody write for example that this is 10-years old domain name - what are benefits compared yesterday registered domain name?
    Thx!

    Backlinks, type-in (searches), hashtags/social, brand, advertising, Adwords, concentration of data.
    So just imagine if there was a website once or a url that was trending from way back...
    I make new registrations in the hope I get something right. My skills are improving.
    So just be careful what aged domains you buy or search for dropped and expired.
    Reg via the way back machine! See when it was first registered. (Hope this helps!)

    MOST quality domains are old.

    this is why age matters to many/most.

    cheers

    Maybe Yes if not Symbolics.com (First domain name) would not have sold for millions.

    In my humble opinion, age is important to some, but not having it, does not stop a sale.

    Age can matter significantly for keyword or dictionary word domains - as mentioned above, many older domains have existing backlinks/previous traffic volumes and search engine 'presence' - developing websites based on older domains adds a certain positive 'juice' and can effectively give you a head start in generating traffic and ranking high in the major search engines.

    It's why some domains which on the outside can visually appear worthless sell for big money - people are purchasing the 'history' of the name, along with the actual term.

    There's also a certain 'prestige' to older domains which increases their value to domain investors - much the same as when you purchase an antique car or watch.

    When it comes to brandable domain names, age probably doesn't matter so much - you're effectively selling the domain name on its own merit to a targeted end-user, as opposed to other domainers/experienced Internet marketers. Age can obviously still play a part, but it's much less important than with keyword/dictionary terms.

    Because if people keep the domain that much long, there should be a reason :)
