Domain age seems to be a somewhat important aspect in getting good SERP's. However, something doesn't seem quite right..

Is it worth it to buy domains that were created in say 1996, but have since dropped and become available? I was searching through and found a few good, relevant domains with some age to them, but it seems like that would be reset in the eyes of Google. After they drop, are these just like any other domain, or do they still hold an "age bonus"?.

Can anybody shed any light on this?..

I've bought expired domains, after the redemption period expired, and the original date of creation survives..

I've always bought mine from the inventory at tdnam but I suppose it'd be the same at premiumdrops. As long as you get it right after the redemption period expires, I'd think you'd be good...

The ones I'm looking at expired about 3 weeks ago. Would it defeat the purpose?..

As far as I know, if the domain drops, the registration date (which I presume is what you are talking about) is reset when you register it..

When buying via tdnam, the domains, does not drop, but are transferred to you. So in that case the registration date is still set when the domain was first registered...

All I can say is, try one and see. What's it gonna cost you, $14 or $15?.

I try to snag mine as soon as they come out of the redemption period. I look for names that make sense for something I have planned, are at least one year old, (duh... they HAVE to be at least a year old to be expired) have some PR (I know, I know... PR doesn't mean shit but a lot of other people still believe it does so if I get PRd domains they're better looking to those idjits) and have at least a few incoming links. (not all from the same site).

Good luck..

The problem with tdnam(goDaddy) is that it doesn't give you any info on the domains (such as age) like PremiumDrops does. Why would PremiumDrops advertise the domain age, if the age is irrelevant once it expires? Just curious...

Comment #5

Well, any dropped/expired domain is going to be at least a year old and, if you're looking for a little extra trust from the google, based on domain age, that'll do it..

Run your prospects through the wayback machine at and see what's been on it in the past. You sure don't want to end up with anything that's been banned by the google, if you ever want them to trust you...

Comment #6

Right, but the question is - does the age value of the domain go away after it has been dropped for a few weeks?..

Comment #7

Yes,absolutely,if you buy expired domain google will count it's like a fresh one with your new whois data..
