Aged Latin domain ranking vs. IDN's -SEO

Hi,

Some SEO guy I’ve spoken to argued that a generic keyword IDN or those coming out in the Fast Track will not be ranked as high in Google as a none IDN that has incoming links, and is an aged domain,even if it has good content etc..
In fact he said that a none generic or even a two word good old ascii or idn that has been out there for a while will do better than a great generic IDN or relatively knew IDN with content and links. Is that true??

I thought that once Cyrillic IDNs will be out in Russia and I were to search Yandex or Google in Russian for a specific term, then if my site (one word generic idn) had good content ,seo etc.- I would be higher on a search than an ascci.com or idn.ru that had 2 words.

What do you experts think?

Pretty sure the IDN and ASCII version of a keyword get the same weight at the moment on google.
Seeing as keyword match is not the only criteria for rankings, obviously the more established ASCII with more backlinks will get better rankings.

Re: Aged Latin domain ranking vs. IDN's -SEO

Domain age is probably a factor in Google SERPs, but not a big one. Much more important is website age ....

However, there is no distinction between ASCII and IDN at all. Some IDNs have been around since 2000, that is no better or worse than a 2000 vintage ASCII domain. Of course IDN domains can't match 1995 ASCIIs .....

Re: Aged Latin domain ranking vs. IDN's -SEO

So I assume that means that all the new Fast Track ones will be at a disadvantage as far as ranking on line for quite awhile, which obviously leads to them and IDN'S in general to be less attractive.
I can own зеленыесвежиевидео.ru/su (if that is how its spelled) and it will rank higher than видео.рф, if all is equal as far as content.

If you will eventually own видео.рф, you'll be too busy trying to keep up with the type-in traffic to care about domain age and SE ranking.

Some of my IDNs get on page one of google within the first 2 weeks. Some even going to the first position. This does not work with Yandex. The SEO guy doesn't have enough information on IDNs. I put my thai (bikini).net site up 2 weeks ago, and it is number five or six on google.
Put บิกินี่ in the search bar for proof. บิกินี่.net now ranks higher than bikini.com
