    Hi,

    I generally create content for my website myself. However, I'v found a website in waybackmachine in my niche, its an expired domain. I'v found some good quality articles that Ican use in my website. I searched for the articles on Google, and couldn't find them. They website and articles are deindexed.

    is it fine for meto use teh articles on my blog? Is anyone using content form wayback machine? Has anyone experienced any problem with ranking them?

    Regards

    I've retrieved content from sites of my own that were deleted a few years back and used it and there was no problem ranking it. Seems to be as good as new. I haven't used content that belonged to someone else so I don't know what the implications might be.

    Google tends to be a little vague when trying to see if it's indexed an article or now.
    I would suggest you try running them through copyscape. If it doesn't give you any results, you should be good.

    Great idea by the way. It hadn't occurred to me.

    I use deindexed content everyday. I just with a could write some sort of plugin that finds expired domains, graps the content from wayback and then checks against copyscape. Now that one would be a "game changing app"
