    Hey, I have had 5-10 different blogs which eventually got expired but I didn't care much about renewing them (I wasn't making money from them).
    Each of them had atleast 50 blog posts. They were very high quality articles. Since they are not there anymore, the content on those blogs have also expired. Can I use those articles for my new website?

    Are they still indexed in Google?
    If, deindex them from Google Webmaster Tools & then start posting to new blog.

    SEO wise it's fine, legally though is a totally other subject.

    Your best bet is to buy the old domains and create the same content on the same urls they were orginally on.

    It sounded like OP created the content, and if that's true, then OP should have no issues with copyright as he owns the copyright to his articles.

    Yes you can. Just check to make sure they pass copyscape - maybe someone else has scraped their content and reused it already.

    You need to make sure the posts are deindexed first.

    Wait for expired sites to get deindexed from search engines and you can use the content from expired sites. For more protection, you can use that on tier1 web2.0 properties and point links toward to main site.

    Pick some random lines from the content and search them in google using quotes "This is an example". If someone has copied your content, you will get some results. If you get no results on Google, then you can definitely use that content again.

    Use archive-org. I sure you will find a lot of your articles.

    I`m pretty sure he already has most of the articles, he just needed to know if it`s ok to post them.. and the answer is yes.. if it`s your content and it isn`t around google anymore, then post it.. but be sure other websites haven`t stolen it yet, try to give the articles a fair search online first..

    Check those links on a site explorer and see if it's indexed. But if those are the high quality you're talking about it'll probably be indexed.

    Yes OP. You can use the expired content into new website. Better you check that it is not copied by other sites now. Mind it wouldnt be any single change in the content.
