Adapting a expired domain will not fenefit you in any way whatsoever. So here is what I did: 1. Built a site xyz.com legit site topic: sports... 500 visitors a day... wasnt satisfied with it 2. Trashed it 3. Built a clickbank product site on the same domain... shit conversions 4. Trashed it again 5. Reuploaed the old sports site And guess what? All the links I previously got over 3 years for the sports site aren't doing anything anymore. The domain didnt even change owners, but google noticed the significant change and "deleted" all the links. So here is the bad news for ya The links to the expired domain you buy arent going to help you =P I mean Google simply isnt that freaking dumb. Its jus another way of buying links and signals... they will not transfer them if they have even the slightest suspicion.
