How can an older site maintain its ranking over time?

I have been in business for over 14 years with my domain, and see much newer domains passing me. Any algorithms to protect older domains/sites in business from newer sites with more spam?

Are pages from social media sites ranked differently?

Are Facebook and Twitter signals part of the ranking algorithm? How much do they matter?

A fun feature of the Chromebook Pixel

Matt has fun with his Chromebook Pixel.

Are results in different positions ranked by different algorithms?

Do Google use the same algorithm to rank all the results on page 1, or different algorithms for a wider variety in the results? (Pos. 1-3 – primary focus on freshness Pos. 4-6 – primary focus on backlinks Pos. 7-10 – primary focus on social signals)
