    HI

    I wanted to know how can i rebuild a website using archive

    1) i have bought a domain from godaddy auction

    2) Its an aged domain

    3) Now i go to web.archive.org - and i search for the domain to see how it looked and what it was

    Questions

    1) Can i copy the theme they used ?? If yes - Then how should i ?

    2) Can i use the exact same content -- I am assuming yes since its the same domain

    So for this do i just go on copy pasting stuff ??

    3) DO i keep the same link structure as currently on the website ? As in the pages and all...

    4) How do i check the PR of all the pages - internal ?? A simpler way to do it ??

    5) How do i check backlinks to all pages ?? Again a simpler and a bulk way to do it ?

    6) How can i check if backlinks were built to domain with "www" or without it ?

    7) In Dmoz domains show a different DA/PA with www and different without "www" -- though a minor difference in most cases.. SO should this be an indication ?

    That's really a tough one. I've wondered this myself. I think completely copying the site can be a bad idea. What I've done before is recreated the url structure (usually in wordpress) and recreated posts based on those urls that are similar but not the original content from the previous site. That way any backlinks that point to those posts are not broken and will be reindexed...

    Not 100% sure about everything but.

    1. Check the Footer or Check the Page Source. If you can't find it still PM me the site.

    2. You can but you never know, maybe someones already scraped and used it... Check for duplicates and then use.

    3. Your choice i guess.

    4. Use SB. Extract all pages using site:website.com

    Then check PR of all using SB or Bulk Page rank checker tool. But this will work if all pages are idexed.

    5. Pretty sure SB can do this as well.

    6. I guess so. Check on ODesk :)

    Best of luck

    Thanks

    One more question

    a domain with "www" is considered different from one with "www"

    How can i find if the previous domain was backlinked using "www" or not.. ??

    You can use ahrefs/SEMRush/open site explorer or any tools to check the backlinks to and check the url that the link was pointing to (www or non-www).

    Just go to ahrefs, look at some of the backlinks manually, and check to see if they used www or not.

    I've purchased expired domains, rebuilt the same content, and ranked for profitable keywords in days, sometimes weeks.
    I don't see a problem at all copying the content, unless its content that has already been copied from another source.

    About the PR. Generally, on expired domains, the PR is going to be reset to N/A, especially on internal pages. You won't be able to see the PR until you rebuild those pages exactly, with the same URL structure. Using scrapebox to check these pages will be possible once the pages are reindexed.

    If a domain has many indexed pages.. and some with PR also...

    is it advised to rebuild them and then redirect them to main page ?? Or just rebuild them with same link structure and keep it ??
