    I have a site that I don't want anymore and wanted to know if the site expires can I take all the articles and paste it on a new site related to the niche without getting flagged from google?

    i wouldnt worry about it to much (unless that expired site was in bad standings)
    once the expired site goes down maybe ping it to show google its gone
    and add your content to the new site and do NOT ping it, let it be found.

    just my thought

    Login to webmaster tools. And please follow these guidelines:

    Change of address

    If you're planning to move your site to a new domain, use the Change of Address tool to tell Google about your new URL. This will help us update our index faster and smooth the transition for your users.
    For best results, follow these steps:

    1. Set up the new site Review our guidelines for moving your site to a new domain. Set up your content on your new domain, then make sure all internal links point to the new domain.
    2. Redirect all traffic from the old site Use a 301 redirect to permanently redirect the pages on your old site to your new site. This tells users and search engines that your site has permanently moved. Ask webmasters to update their links to point to your new domain and make sure incoming links to your old site are redirected correctly using the 301 redirects.
    3. Add your new site to Webmaster Tools Make sure you have added and verified your new domain.
    4. Tell us the URL of your new domain
    PS:This info is copied from Google-WMT. I hope there is no problem since the original copy uses anchor texts.

    You'll find threads here in BHW arguing that there is no dup content penalty. I'm with greentitanium...just pull everything over and let G find your new stuff naturally...
