Deleted Domains Can Kickstart a New Website


Are you getting ready to launch a new website online with a brand new domain name? You may want to consider registering a deleted domain name instead. Here are some of the benefits to consider from this strategy.

Take advantage of previous backlinks

Quite a few deleted domain names still have a large number of websites still linking to them even though the site at that domain is offline. By registering that abandoned domain name for yourself , uploading content, and getting it live again, you can take advantage of these ready made backlinks in your quest for higher search engine rankings.

Get traffic to your site from day one!

When you register a deleted domain name, you can sometimes get traffic that was going to the old site at that domain name right from the day one of being online. This traffic will come from the backlinks, possibly some search engines that still have old pages ranked, and some people who had the domain bookmarked in their favorites and come back weeks or months later.

Do your research though

There can be potential problems with deleted domain names that is too involved to go in here. One thing I would suggest though is to do your due diligence and make sure that the deleted domain name will suit your purposes.

Registering deleted domain names is only one of many strategies out there to boost traffic to new websites. Some people will register a large number of the best deleted domain names they can find, slap a few articles on it then wait and watch to see which ones 'stick'. Others will carefully research the deleted domains and only choose ones that have a completely clean past.

Whatever you do, choose a domain that is focused on your main keyword and topic. Registering a domain with the keyword 'healthinsurance' for a free internet gaming site only invites problems with the major search engines. Stick to relevant keywords for the domain names.

Any way you look at it though, deleted domains are worth a look.
