    So last month on those Black Friday promotions i registered a domain for one of the ventures i had interest to start and pointed to Cloudflare and forgot about it due to having to focus on other stuff.

    Logged in to cloudflare to a good surprise, it had traffic.

    So what do i do?
    I start looking for more info on if the site has any backlinks and maybe content to recover.

    It's a first time getting into those old and already used domains.
    This was already deleted when i registered it.
    Tell me what you think.

    [DONE] Setup Wordpress and 5 pages with ~3k words total.

    That sounds like a nice little surprise to find when you were just thinking of deleting it.
    That should be a nice website to make into an Authority site.

    Did you know in advance it was an expired domain or was it just a coincidence? Lucky you! Make sure it has no spam, which judging by the organic keywords it seems to be somewhat clean.

    At the time of registration i did know that the domain was previously owned by another company and had been dropped.
    Wasn't sure about the backlinks though what caused me to buy it was the fact that it showed some.
    It doesn't show up in any email blacklist or anything.

    Make sure it's safe to use. Check its backlinks and anchors in ahrefs.

    Everything looks clean, it has web 2.0, profile pages, other blog backlinks.
    Anchors look like the following:

    I recently bought a deleted domain. I'm interested to see how your domain works for you. How many articles do you think you'll write before you sit and wait to see how it does?

    I think i will add another 5 articles to fill the previously used url's and see if it makes sense creating more content for new keywords.
    The thing is, web archive didn't have anything on the domain. So all content is new here.

    Update:
    -Added site to G console and they indexed the new content pages.
    -No relevant traffic.

    Thinking about launching some simple python social media bot scripts on the hosting to generate traffic and grow audience.
