    Three months ago, I launched a new site in a low-competition health & beauty niche, and picked up a PR2 domain with a clean (generic-looking) link profile. Within a week after I uploaded my 30 articles, the site ranked on page 4-6 for related longtails, and everything was looking smooth. However, less than 2 weeks after that, all the rankings dropped off google seemingly overnight and has not recovered since, and this is with me dripping in 5-10 tier 1 web 2.0s with tier 2 bookmarks, wikis, and more 2.0s weekly. Occasionally, a keyword or two pops back in the first 4 pages, but disappears just as quickly. My on-page is on point, the keywords aren't overoptimized, and I have it set up in a silo structure. What should I be doing with this site? :/

    have you checked that you are still indexed? It could be for many reasons.. first check if you're still indexed at all - site:'www.xxxxx.com'

    You really can't know what the output will be when you are buying expired domains. I belive the problem is about the domain you bought. They work good as a pbn but when it comes to build an actual site to rank it doesn't always gives good results.

    Quoted for truth. Expired domains are hit and miss. Its a trial and error process.

    To save time, create your silo and put minimal content on each page. Toss an authority link on the ones your try to rank. Then throw 1-2 high PR/PA/DA backlinks at the tops of your silos. If it ranks, then its a good expired domain.

    This is a very important point. I've had sites that dropped rankings after a huge influx of content. This usually lasts for about a 30-45 days. Keep doing what you're doing and building steady links. If it doesn't recover after 45 days, then its probably a bust.

    Funnily enough, I have the exact same problem. I have a PR2 with a very clean link profile, and I've written money articles on top of it, and been trying to rank it for some medium competition keywords. After diversifying anchor text I'm dripping SAPE links toward it. The result after 3 weeks is that out of 3 keywords, 1 is on Page 2, one is on Page 6, and the last keyword has vanished off the face of the earth.

    I'm giving it a wait and watch period of 2 more weeks, I'll let you know. But now I have inherent skepticism about building and ranking websites based on an expired domain.

    All the best OP!

    I guess this has affected you "Within a week after I uploaded my 30 articles," This could look spammy to google, you must continue putting articles every week, No 30 articles together are required..you can go with 5 articles every week..
