    I heard from udemy tutorial that right now domain age isn't fact anymore for SEO. What is your opinion?

    Per Matt Cutts:

    "The popular belief has been that older domains do better in search results and are given extra favor due to their age. The idea is that an older domain that has been established has earned a greater level of trust with Google than a younger domain that is not as established. Matt admits that this is true to a point, but domain age is an insignificant factor that really carries very little weight in the Google algorithm."

    Matt then goes on to list the factors that are more important for a site to rank well in Google:

    • Unique, high quality content
    • The quantity of content
    • External backlinks to your content

    It is true that search engines old domains, however, search engines also give preferences to the updated website. Google will always show the post that was updated a month ago than the post that was published three years ago even if the three years old post is better.

    I would second this thought. High Quality Content + High PR backlinks.. period.

    PS: Of course everything white hat only.
