I would like to know how much of a factor or weight age of a domain name plays in SEO rankings. I'm trying to revitalize my 1+ year old blog (one you see in my signature) and I'm wondering if it's a good idea. I made a number of posts and I haven't done anything with it since.
I was thinking of focusing on low competition (if I can find them) to medium keywords and then writing articles, making posts and then finally bringing backlinks to them.
If the age of a domain is a significant factor in SEO rankings am I better off getting an aged, expired domain in my niche and starting from scratch or should I stick with my niche?
Or should I just find another niche that's not as competitive and start from scratch in another niche?
Your ideas would be appreciated.
