Good question.

One  thing I /do/ know is that Google filed a patent (later authorised,  I
suspect)  for  domain  lookups,  which determine  the  maturity  (positive
connotation  for "age") of domains. Whether this is used in practice, I am
not  sure  anybody knows. Such a strategy would discriminate  against  new
businesses, which lies in some adversity to the history (recent emergence)
of Google, a garage startup company. This also does not fit right with the
following item, which I read just a few hours ago:


Now,  let's also separate the issue of existence and runtime from that  of
domain  registration.  Some  domains were registered early,  later  to  be
dropped  (therefore becoming "deleted domains"). Should this give them any
priority?  Probably not. Sites and parked domains tend to go on Netcraft's
radar quite early on, whereas Google will require indexing through inbound
links.  In due time, it builds trust. New sites are likely to contain spam
or  "get rich quickly" schemes. The proportion of the Web that falls  into
the  latter category is immense, yet fortunately we get to see just a tiny
fraction of it.

I could go on with my drivel, but I'll stop...

Hope it helps,
