Remove Website and Re-use Content ?
Over the last 8 months I've buit a website following the AffiloBluePrint course. I learned a lot through the process (my first affiliate site) but I know I made some mistakes.
I'm fairly convinced my site was affected by the Google EMD update as I had some rankings but for the last four months my site has fully disappeared from the search engine results.
I understand that it can take time for Google to decide on your sites value / rankings etc but I think after 8 months it's fair to assume my site been penalized in some way, maybe not, but thats what I'm thinking.
So with that in mind plus lots of other little mistakes I made, I feel I would be better off starting fresh in the same niche, with a new domain name.
I would like to use all the content I have already on my first site.
I'm just wondering if this is possible ? and if so how I would do it correctly.
Does taking my site off its hosting 'remove' it from the web ?
I'm guessing yes and no... 'yes' in that it can't be viewed anymore, but 'no' in that because my site was indexed by Google, then Google has a copy of it.
If thats true then would I be ok to use my original articles if I just rewrite them, and reuse the photo's on my site also.
Is there other steps I would need to do ? or is this possible at all ? or is there a better way to achieve what I want.
Thanks very much for any thoughts on this.
