1 year? two years? Does it matter? textex msg:3037947 11:17 pm on Aug 7, 2006 (gmt 0) Just read an ad from a local bank in a New York paper. This ad had tips for business owners and developing websites.
They suggested that you register your domain for no less than 5 years to ensure that the search engines take you serious.

I am sure it does not matter too much how long is your domain name registration period. It would not make any sense. Important are, history of the domaina name, baclinks and content. Terabytes msg:3038562 2:09 pm on Aug 8, 2006 (gmt 0)
I have to disagree...
<conjecture> a domain registered for 1 year MAY be considered "to spam"...."not serious" </conjecture>
If you're in it for the long haul....you wouldn't buy the domain for 1 year...you'd purchase it for a longer period...
Just my $0.02

Isn't length of registration now part of the new Trust Rank patents that was filed? Terabytes msg:3039912 2:14 pm on Aug 9, 2006 (gmt 0)
I think you're correct.... jdancing msg:3039946 2:33 pm on Aug 9, 2006 (gmt 0)
I always auto renew my domains year to year and things have been going along fine. There are many things in the Google patent submission paper. I believe they put everything but the kitchen sink in there just to make sure they have it covered or maybe to feed SEOs some of that famous Google mis-information.
