    It was all by accident.

    I had already chosen another domain name for over a month, prior to registration.

    I was just waiting for the best time, seeing that I was engaged with other projects.

    I inputed the domain I had in mind and it was taken, when I checked before, It wasn't.

    I needed to brainstorm immediately and just like that, this name, CLICKATE dropped in my head. Checked and it was free, so I registered it immediately.

    Now guess what, I checked it on the waybackmachine, the domain had existed since 2006. Seeing it was a premium name, someone had parked it.

    I guess we're so lucky afterall. I registered it on the 24th of October, 2017, but the domain was first in existence in 2006.

    So here, I am hoping if the age will help us in theb SERPSs.

    So tell me, how did you find your own domain name?

    NB: I checked on varios domain checking SEO tools, and the date of the domain is 24th of October, 2017, so i guess its past glory will not have any effect on us

    We are starting from scratch, the only joy is that, the domain name is a premium one!

    Dear Clickaters,

    I have done a lot of digging. Apparently, the domain age will not be a factor.

    The reason is this, the domain was not used to build a site, it was just parked by a domainer to be sold to the highest bidder.

    If it will interest, this was how poor the moz metrics were, considering the age of the domain which at present is 11years old.

    DA - 1
    PA - 1

    The task to rank will be herculean.

    PS: If you are reading this, then we are already big in the web and that is how it is supposed to be.
