    Hi

    I owned a website with around 30 pages of content on it, long story short, the domain expired, but i still have all the content on my server. If i transfer this content to a new website, will this be seen as duplicated or not?

    Thanks for your help

    When you Google your site does it still come up? Or does it say something like buy this domain from go daddy?
    If it still shows your sites info you should wait a while longer in my opinion..

    When i google it, it seems someone has bought the expired domain and just using it as a parked domain, no content. When i do Site:url.com, the pages are still indexed which is a bit weird, but when i click them, none of the content is there. But the domain parking stuff.

    I've thought about going to archive.org and stealing some ancient content that is no longer indexed. Surprised black hatters are not already doing this.

    They are, and the reason you know it works is that they aren't talking about it on here...

    Content is so cheap nowadays that creating a scraper to scrape archive.org then parse out anything still in existence is too much work IMO.

    Regarding the OP, put quotation marks around a sentence then search it in google, that will show you if it is in G's index. I don't think you'll have any trouble reusing that content.
