    hello friends,

    Recently i opened a site and purchased a .com domain from bluehost in 6 $ ... It has been now 1 month old , but now i am confused about a bit.
    The domain was used earlier few years ago but for any reason the owner didn't re-registered the domain later.. so it was expired and again open for sale for all (Thats why i found it). I have checked the web archive pages and found that the domain existed earlier. On checking the domain age from hxxp://smallseotools.com/domain-age-checker/ it answered me domain age is 2 years 5 months old..
    and
    checking on this site hxxp://smallseotools.com/domain-age-checker/ it says 18 October, 2015 ( 0 Years, 1 Months old )

    So, Did the domain is considered as expired domain ?
    Will it get the seo benefits which expired domain gets (easy ranking) ? (i need ranking just
    :pray2: more than anything)
    And which one of the above tool is correct.

    I know you guys and solve my useless questions in less than 2 minutes :affection

    from the looks of it, the second site you mention doesn't consider that the domain was registered before, doesn't show history and it only displays the last registration date, if you purchased the domain as an expired domain, then it must be an expired domain

    check with this: https://whois.domaintools.com/

    Its a dropped domain. A dropped domain is one that has not only expired, but is now available for anybody to simply re-register like it was a new domain. Instead of buying at auction, you simply pay the registration fee. So the age gets reset as well.

    Expired domains can be bought from godaddy and their age is preserved.

    You can rank a dropped domain too if it wasnt abused earlier. You can also check http://archive.org/web/ for history!

    Most probably you would have bought a dropped domain, usually dropped domain age starts from zero. I used to check the domain age with the help of netpeak a desktop application.

    The domain will still pass link juice and retain some of it's juice with google. However there's really no reason to copy the content from the old website and put it up as your own.

    There's not any big benefit to using the old content from the old domain, and even worse is the person that owned the domain before is still going to hold the copyrights to the content they created for their old website.

    Stop trying to rank faster because it won't happen, whether you use an aged, dropped, expired domain or whatever you call it. I'd research the history of the domain and ditch it if it turns out to be shady.

    Agreed, Google doesn't give a shit if a domain was expired/dropped/whatever. The fact is they have a good idea when a domain changes hands and a new site is popped up. We can't "trick" them into ranking us quickly like we used to. My advice is always go with the niche domain that has a solid backlink profile and a clean history over the aged high metric domain.
