Should I rewrite my articles after I change the domain name?

    Recently I do some testing, I had good results after 2 weeks with one website, but decided to change a domain name to something more brandable.

    I didn't use 301 redirect. I copied a website, put it on new domain (expired one with good backlinks), and the old one I deindexed and threw away.

    The problem is, it's been almost 3-4 weeks now and I don't see any results. All my keywords are N/A.

    Is it possible that google read my articles as a duplicate content from the old website? Should I rewrite them? Anyone had experienced this?

    Thanks

    The old one you de-indexed and threw away, was it ranking? Since you move the content to a new domain (although expired), it will take sometime for it to start ranking. It could take 6 months to 1+ years.

    You are starting afresh and do not expect ranking immediately, unless the KWs you are targeting have zero competition.
    If the content are OK, there is no need to re-write them, but there is no harm to add new ones.

    Yes, the old one was ranking without backlinks in TOP 20 after 2 weeks, then I moved it to new stronger expired domain to get even better results. So far after 3-4 weeks no luck. I will test new article next week so I don't have to wait so long. Keywords are easy competition, so it should rank pretty fast.
