Actually the issue is how far into the future is the domain paid for rather than how old it is. I pay my domains out every 5 years for another 5 or more. All of my domains have expiration dates of 2019 right now. That shows I'm in this for the long term. In 2015 I will add another 5 years. Maybe 10 years. It's cheap and - As I said - I believe it is a signal that the person / company is *serious* about a long term commitment.
and giving more weight to old links and old sites...
many sites do not last more than ten months
