    Can we use the content from archive wayback on a new moneysite. Articles are not indexed in google anymore. Can we publish it on a new site and will it be indexed?
    If I am not clear, let's say a site was active from 2014 to 2017. Then the owner let it expired and google deindexed the whole website slowly over time. Then I came across it in archive.org now and want to use the same content published on that site (which is not indexed in google) on my new site. Is it fine to do that?

    Nice. If the content is good, will it rank? Won't it be in google cache?

    It will be fine - I've done it at least a hundred times.

    Someone had wrote a guide on generating content from expired domains before. It's completely usable.

    This was the first method of broken link building taught by aHrefs. The idea then was to find broken backlinks that went to expired (or moved) content and use archive.org to grab a copy of the content. Make any logical changes needed (names, internal links, content updates, etc.), post on your site and then reach out to the site w/the broken link and let them know of your "just as good" resource.

    For general content, yes that should still work. If it's not in Google's index anymore, then logically speaking, it shouldn't be at risk for a duplicate content penalty.

    Sure, it's fine for google.
    However, you may potentially run into copyright problems if you don't own the work.

    If you're trying to establish a clean brand name, I would avoid using expired content in case someone badgers you about copyright. For a money site or PBN, I wouldn't worry about it too much.

    Yes, you can use the old content in your new site but you need to do backlinks for ranking...

    Provided that it does not violate any copyrights then I don't see anything wrong using it. If unsure, use article spinners.
