Can any body tell me what is domain age?
Waiting for nice reply...
The age of the domain. The date it was first registered is the birthday if you like.
Yes, and some people think this can have a bearing on search performance, the thinking being that the greater the longevity of the domain, then the more reputable the site. Not necessarily logical, but could be true in some cases.
That's true, domain age has long been a part of Google's algorithm and that alement of it is unlikely to change IMO.
Domain age is the approximate age of a website on the Internet and allows you to view how the website looked when it first started.
How does domain age allow anyone to "view how the website looked when it first started"?
it is viewable by using whois tool. unless the site/domain info is in private mode, you cant view this info.
It is as your birthday
That's not right. A whois database query against a DNS server will only show the details of the registration for a domain. It does not store the original website source. That would take up far too much space and would serve no purpose in relation to DNS.
Domain age mean when u register .
No, not by WHOIS tools. By things like archive.org, maybe... but not by WHOIS.
You know, most people do state domain age as being the date it was registered. But for ranking, I think search engines view age as the day they first indexed it.
I totally agree with that statement.
Then, why do experts says that Google considers domain age too?
They call it domain age but it really refers to the date the site was first indexed. This is simply because there are millions of domains registered that do not have any content.
Age of Website or Domain is called Domain Age
