    After I buy a domain name ... I post articles on my new site, I was surprised that visitors still come from the old Backlinks But do not exist because the articles were deleted items from old domain name
    it gives 404 !!
    what should I do ??
    What should I do in order not to lose Visitors ??

    There are two ways not to lose the visitors.

    - Design and set custom 404 page, for i.e. when someone reach over to 404 page there should be a different message like "Oops, page not found. You may have mis-typed the URL. Please use the search function". And it would be better if you'd also list down there some of the best posts of your blogs as a suggestion.

    - Redirect 404 page not found directly to your homepage.

    Check with waybackmachine if they have those URLs and copy/paste the content
