Search Engine Roundtable Stories:

  • Google On Expired Domains & Domain Name Transfers
    For over three years now, I and others (including Danny) have been trying to get information from Google on how they handle passing link value from domain names, specifically in cases of expired domains and domain name transfer of ownership.
