    Hi,

    This might my 1st thread. I find useful info here all the time, so i am posting a question with hope to get better answer.

    I get a aged domain last month, its registered in 1995, and PR6 with 1000's of quality backlinks.

    I purchase it in $$$$, and then i start doing all high quality contents on domain.

    around 100+ high quality posts done with images, i put premium theme. site get traffic, but today i check domain completely deindex from google.
    i did not put any ad, anything.

    then i register domain google webmaster tools, and found a msg , google guide line issue.

    is it against google TOS to re establish aged domain?

    what is best paractice to do with old aged domains? should i redirect to new domain?

    i have many other aged domains, those i am in process to build sites, what should i do?

    Hope to get answers. thanks guys.

    No it's not against their TOS to build a site on a domain that has been registered before. You do have to be careful about existing links though.

    There are two possibilities: on site violations or off-site violations.

    My guess is on-site violations if it was indexed and then de-indexed. If it had been problems with the existing links the site wouldn't have been indexed after you bought it... unless the links were the problem and your building the new site put them on the radar.

    Either way, if you care about the site, figure out what the violation was, fix it, then submit it for reconsideration.

    Thanks for reply. its really helpful. and i am clear at least about my other domains, so i can build others. its great news.

    now about this domain, no on site violation, i mean, very high quality posts done but posts are in different categories, like shoping, tech, home and garden etc.. i cover many categories.

    But previously domain was about some thing else.

    is matter if perviously domain was about html, php. and now i do contents about shopping, tech etc.. is it against google tos? and perviously domain links build like this, brand.com www.brand.com ?

    and one question, google do deindex after manual review? or google do automate

    High quality content does not mean it is in compliance with their TOS. You need to comb through that TOS. It's vague in places and those are usually the places you're in violation.

    It's possible that the total change in topic triggered a review. Sometimes these things are manual and sometimes they are automated. Unless you were ranking for something competitive it was probably automated but you can't know for sure. If there were incoming visitors looking for the old site they could have reported it as hacked or something.

    Naked URL links are great. Google won't have a problem with them specifically.

    Did you install a plugin like link juice keeper to redirect old URLs to the homepage? If not, were there old URLs that were indexed but go to a 404 page? How much of the site was indexed when you got it? Cleaning up any discrepancies here might help.

    No i did not install any redirect plugin, i did not do anything with site. old indexed pages go to 404 page. around 100 + pages were indexed when i get domain. i just do good contents.
    but yes, here it go. Repurpose old domain is against google TOS. is it true?

    Backlinks, contents quality, domain, no issue, only thing is topic of site change. its trigger, or some one reported, google take manual review and deindex. ( i am 99% now sure about it)

    if i follow old site and do contents accordingly and submit reconsideration , will google count it?

    what are other options? i mean, can i redirect deindex domain to another domain , will it pass value, link juice?

    Excuse me,if missed any part from you.Have you checked the past of the domain(using wayback).Sometimes old aged domains comes from godaddy had a bad effect.Once i picked on old domain of 1996.Later a mail came to me stating that.that website was closed by FBI for some malicious acts and events.So the domain bared all the negative effects.

    1. Read the G's TOS, dude!

    2. What exactly is your 'google guide line issue', we don't read thoughts... Paste it here, please
    The whole thread is just guessing, so far.

    yes nothing wrong in wayback machine. site live and work good. high quality pages from gov and around edu link back too. around 150 high quality edu and gov and many many other high quality sites.
    site active from 1995, but in wayback 1996, as wayback only show from 1996, and site live and good archive data.

    if its mention in google TOS, i must avoid it. so far yes its guess. but i am close to confirm it. nothing else i violate.

    i am still looking for answer, old age domain rebranding or repuspose with different contents (good a+ contents) against google tos.?????

    bump*. too many 404 pages can lead to deindex? (google penalty)
