    I've got an expired domain here that I'm trying to re-install on wordpress and use.


    In archive.org I type "domain.ca" and see this when I click a timeline:

    huh.jpg


    I know nothing of anything regarding website design/installations but I am assuming that its 301'ing the "domain.ca" to a subdirectory = "domain.ca/en"?


    Now all of the back links pointing to this site are distributed between:


    "domain.ca"
    "domain.ca/en"
    "domain.ca/fr"


    The site was previously in both english and french it would seem.


    When I go to Open Site Explorer under "Top Pages" I see:


    "domain.ca/"
    "domain.ca/en"
    "domain.ca/fr"
    "domain.ca/en/main/splash"




    My Question is:


    • are these subdirectories or are these pages? How can I tell because the extention for both a page, post or subdirectory looks the exact same in the url structure?



    • if they are subdirectories, then the most PR links are pointing at "domain.ca/en". Can I simply build the site on a that subdirectory and 301 the root and fr subdirectory to siphon all the PR to the "domain.ca/en"?

    Hey i am not fully understand what you said above but if your domain is expired then you need to renew it (that if you can as there are those who buy expired domains). one you renew it it should get back to work.

    I hope your site isn't - ***.r****.ca
    Basically I hope it doesn't start on R in the domain name.
