    Couple of questions.

    I set up a site via fantastico with wordpress and I let it expire. I now decided I want to get it back. If I re-buy the domain, is it pretty much ready to go after I change the name servers? I'm not sure how that will work?

    Also, I have a lot of links still pointing to that site, will google just pick those up? I'm not sure what impact that has on the serps? Anyone that has been in this situation before, i would sure appreciate a little advice!

    You're ranking will drop if you don't act sooner than later. All it would take is a 404 to your domain's index page when crawled at an inopportune time and I'm certain it would drop if not be deindexed completely when recrawled.

    Honestly it's already deindexed. I'm not worried about that. It actually expired about a year ago, should have mentioned that. I didn't see the potential and understand SEO now like I did then. I spent a lot of work and have a lot of unique content on it. I think with a little TLC it would be a money maker. With that being said, same question I guess. Will google eventually pick up on all the back links? I imagine this has to have happened to someone before, was hoping for a little insight. Thank you for your responses!
