A couple of my domains have been due to expire and I've noticed that whenever it's close to expiration time, the domains that are expiring start to slip in rankings or disappear altogether in the rankings. Site A: Registered it a year ago, didn't touch it. All of a sudden I decide to go ahead with the project. I make a website, blast links and it's sandboxed. I wasn't expecting a year old website to even be playing in the sandbox. I checked the expiration date, and it expired next week... so 2 days ago I renewed it for another year... I'm waiting to see what happens now that I renewed it... will it come out of the sandbox and play nice? Site B: Expires in a couple weeks. Was ranking on first page for main keyword... i haven't backlinked it in months.... all of a sudden it disappears as it's heading to it's expiration date... I'm wondering out loud.... have you guys ever experienced this?
