Hi,

I have bought an expired (dropped 48 hrs ago I think) domain today. I just like it so I registered it for my new website. You can view the domain in my signature.

But now I have a lot of confusions about it. First of all its whois history shows that it has been dropped 3 times in total. Then it has a pr of N/A. And I think there was no site on it for a few years back and even it was not pointing to any nameservers too. From archive.org I have found that the last page on this domain existed in 2006. And it is not indexed in Google

So, I am having a lot of irritation about all this. Is my site banned by Google or Google Adsense? Can I survive with it? Is it worthwhile to create a website (start business) on this domain?

Please help me..Thanks a lot in advance!

      You bought an expired domain and expect it to be in google? Why?
      If nobody did anything with it since 2006, why would it show up?
      Google indexes websites, not domain names. Why would it have
      any PR but n/a? Even if the site was live recently, google is very good
      at dropping them pretty quick if they expire. That's like becoming
      non-existent.

      Develop it. It'll show up soon enough.

      Check 2006 for thee internet archives. Its the last time they had screen shots for it. I missed that you said you did but looking at it here I don't see anything suspicious about it

      I doubt that you are going to have any problems with it except the kids station objects to the use of its name.

        @paulgl, Mike Anthony

        When i hear that search engines look on domain age, does that assume that website must be indexed for long period of time in search engine or that does not matter and what matters is just domain name age since its registration?

    Hi, Mike! What does this means? Anyone already using this name? What and where is the kids station? Can you please tell me?

    Thanks

      I think the solution is submit reconsideration to Google and tell them that you are just buy the domain but still not index in google. I suggest you to developed first the website before ask reconsideration.

      Because they will manually check your site and if they think your site is crap they will not put your site on Google search result.

        Yes... I think so...!

        @Boris_yo: I think it is the website age that matters, not the domain age. Domain age does not reflect the website's quality, but the website's age does.
