I came across an article a few days ago covering SEO tips, one of the tips covered Domain Name Registration Periods. I can not for the sake of me remember where I read it, I was just browsing. See below his 2 tips regarding registration periods: If you register your domain name for 1 year only. Google looks on this as website tourism and will not take your website serious till your 2nd year. On the other hand he did say registering your domain name for a 5 year period, will be looked upon by Google as being a serious website owner with commitment. Do you think their is any truth behind what he is saying?
