OK, this one has me stumped and I was wondering if anybody here could provide some more insite.
Here is the situation:
Two domain names were bought within the same week. AWS sites were put up on each one using the same script.
- Domain A was picked because it sounded OK and had recently expired within the last two months. It has a site on it for the last 4 years. It had dropped from the search engines. Two months later after linking and submisions, its still not listed. Comes and goes on Yahoo right now. I view this as closer to normal as my other sites went through the same with about an 8 month lead time for good traffic and revenue.
- Domain B was picked as the name was better then A. Domain expired in the last two months but there has not been a site on it for about 4 years. Same AWS script was used and 6 weeks later there is decent traffic and indexed pages and its making decent revenue.
So any ideas on what can affect this? Would this be a history of the domain or just stupid luck? I would love to be able to recreate this situation.
