    I recently bought an expired domain. My website is done however it is not getting indexed. Is there any problem with expired domains or this is a general trend going across the world?

    Indexing takes time, if content is good, and site structure is good as well, you'll get indexed.

    For an expired domain it should not take more than a week.

    I hope you are not trying to index "hello world" and that you have built the site properly. Even then it can take a few days, week or even two. And also, the domain can't have a manual penalty already applied, which is very often the case with expired domains, unless checked properly.

    Thanx Nargil.

    I just checked through wayback machine, ismywebsitepenalized that my domain is not penalized. Probably, I guess Google has updated its algo for search console.

    Slow indexing is common these days. Dont worry man.

    Did you check to make sure the domain wasn't penalized before acquisition?

    No, Everything is fine in GSC. Probably, slow indexing is the reason. Thanx Guys.

    As mentioned above, add the domain in Google's Search Console. Alternatively, use a free solution such as this or this (free trial). Keep in mind that free solutions may not be 100% accurate but can be helpful at times - it's situational.

    Looks great, but that need me to prove ownership of domain, but that could be not possible before acquisition, right?
    Or there's some hack to add domain to search console, without owning them?

    Thank You for your help.

    Add website to Google search Console (google.com/webmasters), get more links to your website and it will be indexed :)

    I think you can index it as per normal domain? Can try submitting to Google and list it in your webmaster tools and analytics. Also can try posting to your social media accounts.
