I registered a domain name TipsDesk.com some 10 days back with namecheap. During the course of my little research on google, I discovered that this domain name was registered some 5 years back (early 2007) but was deleted exactly this time last year.
I yet ran a little research on the backlinks to this domain only to realize that it's got some backlinks - about 39 in number with a lot of duplicate links.
Now, non of these backlinks have got anything to do with what I am currently working on - they seem totally opposite. And from the nature of links I uncovered, it seems to be some domain associated with fun blog - i.e previously.
My anxiety and question is: will this affect my SEO efforts in the future as these links have been cemented in certain websites that made these links look spammy.
Again from my knowledge, older domains perform better in SERPs. Will this be applicable to this 5 year old domain or will it be seen as a brand new domain.
I need help and answers from experienced persons.
Thank you in advance,
