Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
My question: has anyone experienced this and what did you do? I'm thinking of submitting a reinclusion request. Or should I wait to see what happens? How long to wait? This is a 7 year old domain with good backlinks.
If you look at the "expired process" as merely a major website redesign... if you have widgets on an established domain and one day decide to switch to portapotties... you would probably get the identical effects as you saw with your domain "gist" switch to some other gist... including all new web pages (possibly even a new homepage location).
i guess we can conclude that it is a good practice to buy some expired domains instead of registering new one and develop that domain
