How Much Domain Age Matter In Ranking?

Google looks at the domain age just because if you’re up there for a long time, that must probably mean you’re publishing quality content. It only means that your site is up because of a reason and you’re not just any spam sites that go up and then disappear from the radar.

So, If you register your domain for 2-4 years, it would be better than just 1-2 years.

Domain Age is very important a factor.  In general, It is easier to rank for a keyword on an older domain name than a newer domain name if all things being equal.  However,  great content and the ability to generate inbound links and etc will win in the long run.  Remember, Google's focus is to show the most relevant results to the user. A factor of this may take into account that if a website is brand new (a month or so) it may not be as "credible" as a site that has been for a few years. Take a look at what Matt Cutts says from awhile ago (should still be applicable).
