I'm at about at the 9 month point with a major site, about 3,000 pages to date and growing rapidly. It's definately the authority site in its class but too new still to beat the age filter. Ranks in Google for some subpages and more obscure subjects, but the homepage is burried on page 12 of Google behind sites that have virtually nothing to do with the subject. Same story in Yahoo. It's #3 in MSN who does do the best job of picking out the authority sites for competative keywords (though they are still have trouble deep crawling).
