    Does anyone have any experience with using content from expired domains (ripped using archive.org) for there money site?
    Seems just too easy to fill a site with content by doing this along as they pass copyscape.

    I've had great success buying expired domains, restoring them to their old sites (using archive.org) and then building a blog network out of that.

    I haven't tried just taking the content though.

    Thats what I was thinking of doing however, some of the domains have a very spammy backlink profiles (sb blasts). So I wonder if I can just use them on a new domain. cant see a problem myself but you never know with the big G

    on expireddomains.net, they give you the birth date on the site according to archive.org (ABY). just click on the year and it takes you to the archive results. Allot of the domains are not on there but you can find some with 100's of pages snapshoted

    I've never successfully scraped archive.org, do you all do it manually?

    That's a new thing for me. Isn't it risky? I am a tad bit scared to that especially for my authority site. However, if someone has already given it a try and received positive response, then I will give it a try.

    I use the content from the archives from over 2 months and in the forum have post for this (something like finding deleted article farm from godaddy with high traffic). If you use the content from the same domain this is OK! 301 redirect and transferring is white hat and google have good articles about it in the webmasters help so using the articles on other domain is OK too.

    But finding good article is not so simple as you say. In case you search for niche specific articles sometime this is even impossible. Last time I search for article over hour and finally I find, but this is more than needed tome to write it manual. I always search in deleted domain with existing pagerank or with pagerank in the past, because this 90% guarantee good content.

    How the last owner of the domain will find its article and how will send proof if you own the domain with e.g. private registration? If I post link from the resource domain under the content, than this will lead to broken link or to possibly to the feature owner content which is bad for my site SEO. I don't think that this articles must be trow away.

    Why not, it still works, start looking for good quality domains and rebuild them.
