I re-registered my domain name which expired early in the year. I want to start a new site from scratch with it. Is there any seo benefit to it compared to a brand new one?

    Not necessarily. Sometimes it will be beneficial, but that depends on whether or not you "re-registered" it BEFORE it was removed from the ICANN database or whether or not Google removed any previous indexes. It also depends on what the domain had going for it previously.

    I doubt it unless you lost backlinks. Was this a live site or are you talking just the name itself?

    If you're talking just the name all you have going for you is age and name matching. It's debatable how much age affects rank.

    I think theres a chance that the site could still have some juice, check to see if it as any PA or DA using a tool such as opensiteexplorer.org if it says DA 1 PA 1 then the slate has been wiped clean but if it actually does have PA and DA value then the age and everything should give you benfit.
