Got a great domain name?
Is this possible, or?

I was searching at a Registrar yesterday and saw that a nice dotcom domain name was available.

I couldn't believe it and quickly completed the registration.

(1) Is this possible? Am I overlooking something obvious?

(2) I put together a website and published it? How long before I should see the site indexed on major search search engines, speaking specifically of Google's and Microsoft's.

A lot of domains that had formerly been parked on PPC have dropped in recent years. The main thing to do with Google and Bing/Microsoft would be to submit the site to them rather than hoping that they will somehow find the site.

Thanks for responding to my question.

I have submitted to both Google and Bing/Microsoft.

What is the best way to find out if the domain was previously registered (and parked on PPC)?

Generally, PPC parking nameservers in the domain hosting history. These would be sedoparking.com and a few others. If the domain was being tasted back a few years ago, then the domain would have been bouncing around between nameservers every month or so. If you need it checked, PM me.

Thank you for the information and the offer. I'll keep that in mind.

It's been less than 24 hours since I discovered the name was available, registered it, built and published a site then submitted it to Google.

I just checked and it's now ranked number one. That sure seems fast. (I'm not complaining)

I posted the chronology of a very recent new website I uploaded here:

[webmasterworld.com...]

All pages are indexed now and 60% of the images in Google. Bing, as usual, is much slower and has only just got around to indexing the basic navigation pages, of course YMMV!

Whilst Bing is always slower to index, I find that Bing likes to let a site rise slowly through their results and if one has done everthing right they become very difficult for competitors to shift.
