    I found a very powerful expired tumblr blog. But when I tried to register the name, tumblr tells that the name is already used (`Try something else, that one is spoken for.`). What can cause this? If someone else registered it before me, can it still return 404 code?

    How do I check that it is expired:

    1. When I visit the blog, I get the following message:

    There's nothing here.
    Whatever you were looking for doesn't currently exist at this address. Unless you were looking for this error page, in which case: Congrats! You totally found it.

    2. I checked HTTP return code and it is 404.

    It is expired if it redirects to "not found " page
    But if you want to register it, that's a different question.

    If the tumblr blog is expired and you can't register it, it means that it is banned.

    I doubt that. It is a very high quality blog with 33K backlinks. You can check yourself and tell me what is wrong with it:

    http://visualoop.tumblr.com/

    May be someone re-registered it and used it for bad purposes and it is banned afterwards.

    Basically what you said, yeh. Backlink profile on that Tumblr is awesome, but at this point, it's like a beautiful designed bricked phone. :)

    Move on. :)
