    I bought an expired domain some weeks ago, the domain had the same niche which i am building now. I added 5 articles (for every kw i target 1 article). But i am not ranked in top 200 for any kw, is it normal?
    I can remember when i used a brand new domain, added some articles i was already ranking for long tails and some of my target kws, but in this domain nothing!

    So is it bad to use expired domain as money site?

    Make sure it doesent have a penalty, try googling your own domain to see if its indexed. Google is also slower these days takes more time to rank and get indexed. Also make sure your not keyword stuffing, your not using spun articles, your not using plagarised articles.

    Well for expired domains when i use them as pbns i usually wait about 1 month before i even put articles on them. I dont have a complete logic to it its just a second reaction bring up site, then drip feed articles so it doesent look like im bringing up a pbn. I also heard a while back google would be putting a slap on expired domain value for a set time period to discourage pbn building off them, cant tell you if its been implemented yet. All my pbns still ranking their articles after i put them up. Try throwing a few links at it and see if it goes up.

    I usually make 3 sites and send pbns to all of them and keep the winner in the same niche aka. Snowboardingbros snowboardingguide snowboardnow I put up 5 articles on each and build off the one that starts doing the best in google, sometimes one wont even rank. May be some random ranking ffactor.

    Also you've not mentioned what sort of link building you've done so far.

    Yes, Youtube, Instagram, Snapchat, Pinterest as well if relevant to your niche.

    Once you have those up and running you can safely add a few links per week. Just remember to diversify you anchor text.

    Sadly the best way to answer that is "How long is a piece of string". Depends on so many things and how risk adverse you are.

    Unless you buy a massive expired domain in AT the VERY least $100 price range, then do not expect any massive boost. $10 domains won't take you far as money sites.

    Not to mention, you have just 5 articles, site is brand new and needs more time and so on.
