I found an expired domain a month or so ago with links from cnn and wikipedia. Looks pretty clean backlink wise and in archive.org. It doesnt have a massive amount of links and they are all for the domain or brand (no keywords). I stuck a basic wordpress site on there with 2 1000 word articles and left it at that. But after a month webmaster tools still says 0 pages indexed, <10 queries & 1 click. So Im starting to wonder is the expired domain penalized. However, a search for site:mydomain.com shows all the pages. Has anyone seen similar? What do you think, add more content, build some links or noindex it and reuse the content?
