    Many users have been stating that old domains represent the results they see on the SERP. They’re assuming that it can be an indexing issue or due the May 2020 core update.

    Here is the question

    “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?”

    John’s Mueller’s reply

    There is no “old domains” ranking change.
