    I bought an expired domain from godaddy. most expired domains, when you google them, the website comes up. There is no website because it's just a parked page, but it does come up in the serps.

    well, this expired domain that I bought, the price was too good to be true. BUT I checked everything and there are no signs of abuse. Everything looks legit. BUT it is not even listed in the serps. I put up a one page well-written article over a month ago, and it's still not indexed. Any idea what's going on?

    What other efforts have you made other than posting article like pinging, bookmarking, sharing it on a google+ page, etc.., ?

    I didn't ping the actual domain because it looks unnatural. I pinged the backlinks to the domain. so for example, if the domain has backlinks from siteA siteB siteC I pinged siteA siteB siteC

    no, it is not listed in the serps at all. maybe it's been deindexed? but why would it be? the topic is nothing bad. when the site existed, it was about sports. not porn or anything bad.

    Yes.. It could be de indexed so that is the reason domain not getting index and not giving you result..

    Check For site:domainname.com , index:mainname.com , If you can't find any result in this..

    Then there would be no use of posting articles whether it is Top Quality Article Or low Quality article..

    It should Be de indexed thats the reason you are facing this issue..

    FYI: I always make sure an expired domain is indexed before I buy it.
