OK so I registered a domain a couple of months ago. I have developed and added my articles and started SEO work. I noticed the site was not ranking anywhere for my keywords so I decided to look closer at the domain since I wasn't doing anything black hat. I found out the domain had been previously registered and allowed to expire. It was registered somewhere in 2003. Google might have penalized the domain previously because it is a good domain and I don't see why it will be allowed to expire without anyone snatching it. I need advice on how to rank this domain. Should I just create a new domain and redirect this domain to the new site? I have already added a lot of contents to this and done some expensive SEO so I can't just throw it away.
