    Hello everyone.

    I had purchased an expired domain about a month ago. I checked the backlinks and the history and it seemed safe. Just a casual euro domain with a few clean backlinks.

    However when i started building it and i noticed that only the homepage is indexed and not the inner pages.

    What do you suggest? Drop it and start a new one?

    Thanks.

    Give it some more time. You can speed up the process of indexing your website's blog posts by commenting on popular blogs that have commentluv enabled.

    It depends, if it's been more than 3 weeks I'd get suspicious. The thing is, you can have a sitemap and force Google to crawl your site through search console. But having pages indexed doesn't mean they'll rank for anything. What usually helps a lot is making sure your menu structure is available on the homepage, linking to whatever you want indexed / ranked. If you don't want a page in your menu you can also use contextual internal linking or footer links. Furthermore you can share inner pages on Google+ which will get them indexed pretty quickly.

    It looks like that yesterday all my inner pages were indexed. Maybe it was needed some positive energy from BHW. Thanks everyone for their help :)

    That's good. Yes, Google has a little dread over BHW. That's why G index the links, after you started a conversation here. LOL :)
