Who will invest in buying domains for longer times?

    This is a advertisement within the GODADDY site......

    As part of its recently filed United States Patent Application, Google® made apparent its efforts to wipe out search engine spam, stating:

    'Valuable (legitimate) domains are often paid for several years in advance, while doorway (illegitimate) domains rarely are used for more than a year. Therefore, the date when a domain expires in the future can be used as a factor in predicting the legitimacy of a domain and, thus, the documents associated therewith."

    Domains registered for longer periods give the indication, true or not, that their owner is legitimate. Google uses a domain's length of registration when indexing and ranking a Web site for inclusion in their organic search results.

    So to prove to everyone that your site is the real deal, register for five or optimally 10 years and increase your chances of boosting your search ranking on Google.

    ___________________________________________
    So who is going to start registering for a longer lengths of time because of these type of advertisements?

    Problem is that with domains being so cheap spammers will register for longer periods as well so it won't mean anything.

    I read somewhere that google has a patent on this technique, but they aren't using it currently. Maybe they use it now, but I think GoDaddy uses this "information" to get people to invest more money...

    The max you can pre-pay for is 10 years - for SEOed domains we take it anywhere from 5-10. Such a small cost for any gain in G serp.

    I have some domains paid until 2007, but nothing related to SEO, just pure comodism.

    It would be stupid for something like that to be implemented.

    For me it looks like bull...

    For me, keeping 10 good domains for another year is more important than any possible benefit of having to pick one to register for 10 years.

    Thing is..go daddy is offering a discount on the longer registering..so you get a cut rate and it may help with SEO..but I am never sure if I will sell the domain.. and having the longer time on the register raises the price you can get sometimes ... sometimes not.

    The only thing for sure is that GoDaddy uses this "information" to get people to invest more money ;)

    But the spammers will not mind the extra cost if they are going to benefit from it.
    I guess it is just an another way for registrars to get some extra money. One year
    should do.

    I have a 10 year renewal. I'm in it for the long haul. The cost is not significant, and it's worth it to me to not have to worry about paying one more renewal fee.

    Though true that a spam site is not likely to register for 10 years, a longer registration in and of itself does not guarantee anything (to a se). But it makes sense that it is a factor that is considered overall in ranking a site.

    If I did get bumped up with my 10 year registration, I did not notice it.

    Started my first site in January 1996. I pay about 5 years ahead so I don't have to go through renewal hassle every year.

    I'm registering good domains for 5 years too. Why? Not because google ranking, but because I save in renewal fees. That way I register them for 6.95x5 instead of 6.95*1+8.95*4
    Good savings there, when you have a bunch of domains...

    Most of mine are registered for 1 - 2 years and appear to be doing fine.
