Age Of A Website Matter For Ses

only insofar as a site that has been around longer should have collected more natural links.
SEs can only determine the age of a page (which is what SEs rank not sites) from the date they first found a link to it.

I do think age is a factor in the trust assigned to a site, and I think it's at a domain level, not a page level. But that's purely anecdotal and inferred from things I've seen; doesn't make it a fact.
It makes sense to include it- you can't fake age. (Some people try by buying old domains, but from what I can tell, once they hit the "expired" list, it's too late and the "aging" is reset.)

Now if you're looking for opinions, mine is that both the age of the site --defined as when the engines first noticed it in my book-- and the age of links do matter on the trust scale. So a site that has been consistently active for x number of years probably has an advantage. And a link that has been in place for x number of years is more trusted.
It's all conjecture though, based upon how I would look at minutae if I were running a place like Google.

In my experience older site can get rank easily compare to new site. Atleast they are not effected by sandbox. Just tuned the web page and get ranked.

As far as I know if your website is indexed in Google doesn't mean that it is out of the "sandbox".
Am I right?

Am I right?
The aging delay has nothing whatsoever to do with being indexed or not.

However I have found that the degree and duration of this seems prety well proportional to the Competitiveness of the market sector.
Also(I believe) that an old domain (that has not expired) has it's Age Clock reset if the Market Sector is completely changed. For example, an established site selling Books being swithced to sell Shoes would probably have to serve time as a New Site again. It is not quite so cut and dried when the theme is broad or promotes multi product lines.

It's more significant for new sites than older ones... in that it's going to be tough to get decent rankings for the first 6-9 months.
I don't know how significant it is overall, but I do feel it's an ongoing factor for G in particular.

But if I buy a domain name and upload just a splash page "We'll be here soon!" and leave it like this for 6months, one year this means that in the end my domain is out of the "sandbox"? After this I can build my website with all the pages and the content and all my IBL's should start counting.
Does SE's make the difference regarding "aging delay" if you have an empty website or a full functional website?
Hope you understand my English
