    Hey guys ,

    So I randomly came across to this domain that has like 20 top-notch articles ( on waybackmachine , 2010) , I was wondering if I can safely use those ones on my money sites since none of those articles have been copied to another site , as about PBN's I have used tons of content found on archive.org but not sure about money site , if you have any experience as about this issues please let me know

    Thanks

    If you make sure they are not indexed then they are good to go. I used to do this a LOT and they rank perfectly fine.

    If you are checking for uniqueness just on Copyscape, I suggest you take a few random sentences from each article and paste in Google. There are many times when Copyscape will display no plagiarism, but Google will.

    I would never throw content into copyscape or whateverto check if the articles are unique and stuff , instead of that in most of cases I copy-paste almost each paragraph on Big G's search engine and I already mentioned that ^^

    Sure, go ahead and risk your "money site" with copyrighted material. Will see you later on in this forum whining about your site being deindexed.

    Just don't use the content from archive.org at the same domain. The previous owners may get mad. Happens often.

    LOTS of people have been doing this for a long time (myself included) and never had any problems.

    I find it hard to believe that this is safe. Google has bots out the wazoo, I am very suspicious that they have a record of these articles. If you owned the domain and 301 it to your site and then use them I might believe you that its safe... but just yanking articles off an old site seems highly risky. You're essentially telling me the waybackmachine indexes and remembers sites that Google doesn't.

    If those articles index and rank, then you better believe it. But don't take my word for it, just go test it.
