It’s hard to say how much it matters, but we know it plays a SIGNIFICANT role in search engine optimization. We have been competing with companies who have been around since 1995, 1998 and early 2000. rankaboveothers.com was registered in 2004, but it was not active until March/April. To Google, we really didn’t actually exist until March/April of this year. We’re barely over 2 months old competing against 10+ year old sites.
That is a major disadvantage because even though we have more indexed pages and more inbound links, we’re most likely not going to rank as well as our competitors (at least not yet). It will take us a good 6 months before we are recognized as credible and an authoritative website. We’ll pick up speed and rank very well by then, but we’re still not in the clear.
It may take another 4-6 months before we truly prove ourselves to Google and other search engines. Until then, we must maintain a steady and consistent marketing approach. We must add a steady number of backlinks, submit a consistent number of article marketing, gradually add on more videos and social media bookmarks and constantly adding more content. Any sudden movements or changes and we’ll be in some major pain.
Even though we’re ranking #6 for “dallas seo” we know that we can get to the #1 spot on the next Google update simply because of the validated backlinks, increased number of indexed pages, increased number of content and possibly the increase of our PR. These are the things you should be doing for your business. Get them before they know what’s happening.
You’ll notice that we talk about our experience and how we are approaching search engine optimization. That’s because we lead by example. We are in fact telling you what you should be doing with your website in order to rank better in the SERPs. We talk the talk and walk the walk. We’re not going to tell you to do something we don’t do ourselves.
Now, back to the significance of a domain’s age. We know that it plays a major role because we’ve been researching and analyzing our competition. They’re really not very good, but they don’t know that yet. By the time they find out, it will be too late and we’ll gather up about 40%+ of all Texas’ search engine optimization and Internet marketing related search terms. It will take them months and years to catch up with us by then.
Point is, if you want to do the same thing to your competition, you’d better have your domain now and get started on adding content to it, then slowly build your way up. If you wait, it will just be harder later on down the road. Also, just registering a domain and sitting on it does not compare to getting real content on the site and getting it indexed.
