Right - that's extremely important advice. Domain age as a trust factor was mentioned has one of those "may be used" things in the historical factors patent. A lot of the patents use "may" language - and you can't go running with any of that unless you test and verify.
A trust factor that "may" be in place is long time ownership by the same person or business - but that's not so easy to test, and it is even harder to fake it when launching a new site.
