    Lightbulb Does a Domain Nearing Expiration Affect SEO?



    Now, if you run an SEO analytic tool and found out that you domain will expire in a couple of months, should you WORRY that it might affect you SERP Ranking??

    ANSWER:

    Definitely NOT! Your ranking will remain the same. Like your debtors do not ding your credit when you have not paid your bills the day you receive them, GOOGLE also do not lower your SERP rankings when your domain is nearing expiration. As long as you paid your registration on your DUE DATE or within 30 days after the due date (for US), your rankings will remain the same

    ALL DOMAIN has expiration date and no one on their right mind will renew it years before it expires. It’s a bad business practice since you could have use the money to make more money. GOOGLE knows that businesses often pay their bills close to their due date and the same applies to Domain Expiration.

    So as long as you pay your domain registration not later than the due date, then SEO will not be affected.

    SEO After Expiration?

    If you failed to pay before the due date, then in a few days, your domain will be SUSPENDED – which means your SEO is doomed. But do NOT worry, after renewing it.. surely, your site will be back but, most likely, its ranking had dropped.

    Why dropped in ranking? It’s not because you failed to renew your domain on time, but because at the time your domain is suspended, your competitors surely done SEO continuously.

    Now, that’s it. Again, A DOMAIN NEARING EXPIRATION DOES NOT AFFECT YOUR SEO.


    In Addition…

    Register for MULTIPLE YEARS at FIRST!

    This is very important. When you are about to build and register your domain, it is important and wise that you first register it for multiple years like 3 or 5 years. WHY?? So that GOOGLE will acknowledge your domain as a serious one and not to be tagged as just another SPAM DOMAIN.

    Hope this helps!

    Most people would say domain age does have an effect but how much is debatable. I don't think it has too much of an effect but I think it does help... more importantly are the links and trust it may have built up over the years.

    If you purchase your domain say for 5 years instead of 1 year, this is meant to be an indication to Google that you are more serious about your domain and supposed to have a small positive effect. I think the effect would be negligible if any effect at all.

    True indeed. Domain age is just a number - I always say. It's all about the link history/profile your domain has. People just say aged domain is more SEO friendly because it is expected to have lots of quality backlinks.

    Domain name plays vital role in seo.If your domain name is very old the pagerank,traffic and backlinks are also very high. Domain age is calcuated by current year minus(-) domain name registration date. If the domain name is very old it will get very high rank in google search engine.You can visit the site WhoisXY.com to find the owner of the domain name, domain age, contact details etc.

    Only register for multiple years if you're that serious with your business domain name.

    Great informative post about expiring domain and seo.
    Well, domain registrar really don't give a damn if your domain is expiring and so as search engines.
    As long as you give good info then they're good to you.

    Probably not. Expiration dates wouldn't be a very good test for search engines to use: it's an easily-gamed system that has little bearing on whether the information the site contains is likely to be valid, which is what search engine algorithms are all about.
