Question Is age of site important for SEO?

Is age of site important for SEO? How does google determine the age of the site or can we register our sites age in google?

Websites which have a longer established prescence in Google are certainly favoured more than those which do not.

Brian is right. There's also no need to register a site age in Google as it can find this out from server records.

it might be the wrong metric to look at, but generally, yes... the more time invested into a website, means it's older, and in some cases, that age makes a significant difference.

Age is not important in Google Search but for Bing.

Interesting, there seems to be some debate on this issue! The problem is who knows the Google algorithm? I have found that my newish site has ranked quicker and better on Google than Bing. This would tend to support this theory, or all things being equal, perhaps Bing places more importance on Site age than Google.

I think it is in the algorithm on most search engines but I feel it is not as important as it once was. As with all things with search algorithms, we can only speculate.

How long are we talking about? Months or Years?

Of-course site age is quite important for a site in order to rank higher on Google because Google Bot gives more weightage to an old domain rather than a new one..........
