I built a blog around a emd and realized it was not being indexed. I pinged regularly, xml sitemap, webmastertools, whois sites, and a couple bookmarks. So I checked the wayback machine and found that the emd was registered back in 2009 with a one page content. I am going to assume that the domain was dropped by the previous owner. Now should I ask google for a reconsideration or cut my losses and start with a fresh domain?
