    Hi guys, I had several sites from about 2011 and 2012 ... I let the domains expire and the content is no longer found on google. Can I reuse this content? I mean, I know i CAN, but will google think its new again? Its on archive.org

    Thanks!

    yes you can use the content again and google will treat it as new content.

    Infact just the other day i used archive.org to check expired domains in a certain niche and found some absolute gems of articles, one of which is now ranking on page one.

    Yes you can use the content again. I've done this many times without problems, and the content has ranked again.

    Yes, you may. Some of my clients are doing this. Some of them let me rewrite the content just to be on a safe side.
