    Hey.

    I just bought a domain off the godaddy expiring domain auction.

    When check "Domain Manager" there's no domain there. Why?
    How long may it take before I can use the domain? :eek:

    Thanks.

    It can take some time to show up in your account. Usually they'll email you once it's been successful, but if you have any doubts, contact GoDaddy's support.

    another question:
    The domain I bought is 6 years old, but due to the fact that it has been parked for so long (2 years) it's been removed from google index.

    Will this domain still be more seo friendly than a brand new domain? :)

    Yes, it will because of the domain age.

    If you buy from Auction it will take 6 days to show in your account. Info about this on their website

    Domain age will help it rank, and if this domain has ever had PR in the past, it should be easier for it to accumulate new PR.

    Go into your godaddy account. Go to the auction section. Go to see the list of domains you bid on and the list of domains you won. It will tell you the release date for the domain you won. THis is when it will be in your account.
