    If it is deindexed then sure you can, but you should check that before posting on web 2.0 (someone could copy that article it in the past and posted as their own)

    run it throug copyscape before you are using anything.. best would be to use fresh content in most cases.

    You can use any content that's currently not indexed by Google.

    And if you like you re-register the expired domain which content you want to use then redirect it to your new site. The cost is just what you would pay for 1 500 words long article- $10/yr. :)

    Google has a very long memory. Just because you don't see it in search, doesn't mean it's not indexed. You should not use duplicate content like this if you care at all about the site.

    You can use expired content, I've done it a lot over the last few months. Everything is fine.

    i know a few people that do this with content from expired domains. I would be a bit concerned with using content that was on a site that was deindexed from google for spam etc, just check the site out that the content is from before you use it.

    Yes, if the site is deindexed, you will be able to use that content

    What do you base this on? I have multiple sites with expired content that rank very well. If its not indexed where are you suggesting they keep it, their own archive.org style repository? Though this theory is possible I doubt it, since personal experience shows expired content works.

    these all was my sites so now dont want to register them again because they were hosted on same hosting. it was hard to rank them now a days, so i found only few keywords and created new site.. thank you for you suggestion mostly people agree with me to use content so i am gonna use it.

    I want to be on safe side always so i will spin content only once to make it more unique.

    Pick a few lines from the content and search it in Google using quotes: "This is an example text.". If you see any results, it means the content is still in Google's index and you can't use it. If you get no result, feel free to use it.

    Just check for the duplicacy, as older domains are de-indexed so you can definitely use it.

    If the content was on a website that has been penalized for whatever reason then I would not reuse that content.
