    That is indeed a good way to go this new year. I will say that as long as you get a niche that works best for you, then you have not to delay at all. Make sure that the niche is presented in a way that is very unique so that you compete well with people who are into this too. I am so much curious and what to know how all this willl go about. I am just hoping that it works well for you.

    Get a new domain. It's not worth it to hassle with a penalized domain if you are just starting out. Just get something that was never used before.

    Yep I guess I will have to do that. Kind of a pain since I got this far into but lesson learned. I was hoping there was no penalty now but its been a couple weeks since I got site rehosted and still not ranking at all for my main keyword.

    I had used an exact match domain but I will do something more brandable like "niche construction guy.com/org/net" and then make a seperate page to rank for the keyword. I seem to have noticed on some other pages around the net that people are having a lot of sucess ranking pages other than the home page so that will be my new strategy with this project.

    Its crazy that for random sites I just wanted to register for linking power I used wayback machine, etc to make sure it was not spammed in the past but on the one I built my money site on I somehow neglected these essential steps.

    Live and learn, I am crazy tight on funds right now so I will have to wait to get a new domain to rehost content on but I will push ahead. I will update when I get the new domain registered.

    You can only violate the rules so many times before the hammer comes down.

    Are you looking for a fresh domain or one that is expired?

    Most likely a fresh domain but maybe I should look for a brandable one ? I may be naive here but I think over time I can produce very good content for this site and there is some competition but nothing that I should not be able to beat over time. Of course some existing domain with existing links that is brandable would be amazing but not sure how likely it is to find that.

    I am curious why you are wandering that? you think I should look for an expired domain ?

    And I should note I am very happy with the mods here and appreciate that they keep the boards clean of the scammers, or at least the ones that break the rules ;)

    You are better off with an expired or dropped one with some backlinks as that will save you a lot of SEO work in the future.

    That is all I buy now when I set up a new site.

    There are lots of places to find those and you want to use archive.org to make sure that the history is clean and something like ahrefs to see what links are in place.
