    Hi guyz, so i've decided to take down one of my site after it has been penalized for spammy backlinks...I decided to shutdown the site and move all the content to the new domain.
    But before that, I saved a copy of the sql database and deleted that one linked to my site. Now it has nothing on it, i forwarded the domain to a under construction page.
    I went to duplichecker online and pasted one of my article, it was able to trace back that article coming from my site after being taken down. What can i do to remove all the traces so that all content will appear to be unique when they will published to the new domain? thanks

    I don't think there is much you can do but wait it out. SEs will eventually flush their cache of the content (and it will certainly take more than a single day.)

    I am pretty sure that Google still has a tool within the Google Webmaster Tools that will allow you to submit URLs for removal and they also remove them pretty fast. You just need to make sure that your site is generating a 404 response code.

    I am not able to provide links yet, but just do a Google search for Google Webmaster Tools. The first link should be the right one. Proceed through signing up an account. You should be able to use your Google account if you have one already for Gmail or YouTube. Once you sign up you will have an option to add your domain and you will need to verify it. The instructions should be there for the verification part of it. But once you get setup, just login and along the left sidebar navigation click Google Index and then a sub-menu will appear and then you click Remove URLs from the menu. There you should be able to enter your domain/URL for removal from Google. I just checked it now and it mentioned abut using a robots.text file so I think you can use that instead of 404 pages. I haven't used this tool in a few years.

    Edit: If you need help with the robots.txt or verification part of it just let me know. I'm on a tablet right now so its hard to type, but I will be on a PC in a bit.

    you're going to need to either spin the articles or wait a long time before you can use them again.

    Wait till all the crawlers re-crawl your site.

    You can't expect them to be done in a day.
