    I bought a deleted domain a few hours ago.

    I don't remember it being indexed nor was the page showing any sought of sale. (Just the usual "this page is not valid" or whatever)

    I have added some content and meta tags then submitted to google's index. Google shows that the site is for sale in the meta title and description..

    Shouldn't it be showing my content?

    I bought the domain from my hosting service at the usual price.

    When I click the link from google, my content DOES show, however.

    It obviously was indexed as a "for sale" page before and Google simply didn't update the index so far to reflect the new content. So, nothing to worry about, the index should reflect the new content/title/metas in a few days.

    Google will have cached the old version of the page before it expired and you got it im sure it will update when it re-crawls the site in the next few days

    Hi,
    I think google haven't yet updated it. After updating it may be descriped as sold out... Don't worry about that...
