There have been so many theories around recent unstable Google search ranking updates. Google’s John Mueller shuts down one of the theories about old domains receiving some kind of ranking boost or change. Google’s John Mueller was asked about why old domains look to be displaying more of the Google search results than earlier. John considering this replied that there are no old domains ranking change.
Here’s The Tweet:
@JohnMu @dannysullivan @methode @searchliaison I have observed in last few weeks that top 20 google result are represented by old domains(domain age is before 2012) Is it related to indexing issue or it is because of Last month's core update?

Recommendation: Google Is Currently Facing Indexing Problems
There is no "old domains" ranking change.

Obviously, old domain names have more history to it that might be bad or good.
