    Hello,


    I purchased a WP Adsense niche site almost two years ago. Posted about 5-6 articles, bought some backlinks and then just left it as it didn't start making me money and eventually the host deleted the account. Last year, I restarted the site, posted the same articles (one each week) and the same thing happened (but this time I took a back-up).


    Now that I have GSA. I want to give it another try to rank it.


    Question: (A) Should I just restore the back-up? The posted articles will be dated sometime in 2012/2013. (B) OR, I install a fresh WP and start posting the same articles again (one each week)?


    Which option is better in terms of SEO?


    This time I have GSA so I will be building links on it myself.

    Personally I's use the back up because the age on the posts will help a little, of course you will need to add new content. It's not good when domains get booted for unpaid hosting bills, indeed if you visit archive.org you don't really want it to be showing a suspended page. Any regarding seo just because you bought GSA nothing has changed, if you have no clue how to use it properly it'll be a waste of time like your previous seo efforts appear to be. Look on the GSA forum, footprints and lists are the key, unfortunately, for you, building a good list takes time, and getting the best footprints takes even longer. I know no one shares the good footprints and do not expect to see them while they are effective. If you stick with it you will eventually figure it all out.
    If I were you, I'd buy a pre made list, then start some serious harvesting of urls. Put some effort into it by creating top notch spun articles ,see matthew woodwards video on spinning (search youtube). That is the sort of level of spinning you need and html in your links, GSA drops anchors in a strange way woth articles, it's better placing them yourself. Of course create your own set of the default stuff like comments, guest book comments etc. Don't use the default ones. I'd actually spend at least 2 weeks learning GSA before you put it into use. You can harvest urls while you learn it.

    You have 3 options:

    1- If the urls are still indexed in Google then just do the backup

    2- If the urls are still indexed in Google, change your robot.txt to block them, additionally put a request to take them down. After this, start adding content gradually.

    3- If the urls are not indexed any longer, start posting the articles.


    If you are not contempt with your previous SEO efforts simply deindex those urls and post the articles under new urls before starting the new SEO campaign.

    If you are looking to rank for long term I would not suggest using GSA for your tier1 unless you REALLY know what you are doing.
