Should I recover pages of expired domain or build new with the same content

    Gotta couple questions for the community and appreciate the help in advance.

    1. Im beginning to build out my own PBNs and using Dom recovery to extract the pages of expired domains. Since the domain is expired is it even necessary to reindex the site as it was? Or could I just build a completely new site?

    2. A lot of the time returning the site as is has its limitations. The image files may be missing or what have you. So if I upload the site as was just to get something up and indexed immediately while I prepare the content, could I then switch to a Wordpress or another CMS template, with similar content and maintain the TF/CF DA/PA? I'd imagine if this was possible there would need to be a redirect? Is there a way to 301 html pages of a website to new wordpress pages if its on the same domain? I've done this with a Brand change and new domain, but never same domain.

    Just build a new site, I had issues with rebuilding when trying to make it relevant to my niche.

    and yes you can redirect the .html pages, it is done with htaccess, or a few wordpress 301 plugs would do it

    If your niche is very closely related then build from the expired pages but if the niche is different you are better off doing it afresh.

    If you plan to resurrect the site make sure to check for plagiarism, if it has duplicate content then it is better to create a content that is relevant to your niche.

    Im pretty good about finding niche relevant domains, where the content is relevant.

    So if I re-upload the old version of the site, can I then change it to a CMS as long as the wording is the same?

    Does starting from scratch in the beginning wit a CMS and not uploading the old version cause you to lose some of the metrics? TF/CF or PA/DA drops?

    if you can
    do the same pages with the same content
    then start making some new pages that may related more to your work
    sure your old data are suitable for your new website

    may be later you can redirect some or all of these old links to new pages (301 redirect method will be great)

    SO here's what I've done because the domain is very relevant to my niche. Ive used Dom Recovery to get the files of the old site and upload them to the server. Now, I was going to create pages on the new site for every page on the old site, and redirect the old pages accordingly. But after evaluating the site, I see there are only 3 pages with links pointing at them.

    So Im running a hybrid site, for lack of better terms, at the moment. I've recreated the pages with links on the old site, to the new site (WP theme) and redirected them accordingly. I had to make some tweaks in htaccess for it to work, but finally got it. There are still html pages on the site. URLs that had no link juice so I figured why create a ton of work for nothing. You can still get to the pages. I assume I can't continue building all of my PBN sites as "hybrids", as I'd imagine this type of site is not typical. Does it matter if half of the site is .html and the other half isnt?

    Anyone else doing this?

    I personally wouldn't do it that way, seems like it taken you way too long. You want all the same prefixes for the pages.

    I would finish the site the way you started, but next time just build the site from fresh.

    Actually doing it the way Ive done it has been much easier. Site is already indexed in 3 days. Using Dom Recovery is literally the few clicks of a button, then upload the files to the server. Then simple redirect in htaccess to the new pages. How else would I keep the juice?

    Is there any reason why you'd want same prefix for all pagees?

    When people are trying to find your site, if it is turned into a real looking site, would be confusing with different prefixes. And could be an indication to G that someone has just rebuilt a few of the pages and built it into a PBN.

    Also, I buy domains for multiple purposes, and from multiple niches so I like to start fresh. I will just redirect the page(s) to a new one I built with slight relevance, to give the site an updated feel.
