I just heard that google stopped not allowing completely new sites to get decent rankings during the first 6-9 (or so months)...a while ago?
If I remember correctly thats what people referred to as the sandbox (with most arguing it exists, and others saying its all in peoples' heads).
Anyway, can a completely new domain/website do just as well in Google as a 10 year old website, if they have similar backlink patterns?
PS: or is it that the age of the domain/site doesnt count anymore, but the age of the links still does.... (not sure if the age of links thing is true, because i havent seen enough evidence of it myself, but ill give it the benefit of the doubt here :-))
