Of-site Analysis

Domain Info

Search engines factor domain "stability" when looking at a website. So, it's better for a website to be registered for a long time.

Age of Website

The age of a website is one of the major factors used to rank a website.

Usually Google waits some months before giving a [[[PageRank]] to a website. This is called the sandbox effect.

Registering your domain for a longer period of time gives an indication that your site intends to be around for a long time, and isn't going to just disappear after a few months. This will help boost your score with regards to your domain's age.

Two things that are considered in the age of a domain name are:

  • The age of the website
  • The length of time a domain has been registered

To check the age of your domain you can use the following websites:

Google Page Rank

Ranking by Google.

Indexed Pages

The approximate number of pages on a website that have been stored in the Google index. The Google web crawler will visit the website periodically and look for new content for its index. Generally, the more pages your site has within the Google cache, the better.

Backlinks Information

Having links to your website from authoritative resources on the Internet helps you rank higher in search engines since these links are an indication that your website is trustworthy and contains good content.
