    When faced with a wall of errors and no hope to fix them, remember the following "Programs always do what you tell them to, and seldom what you want them to, but eventually you'll run out of things that can go wrong and it'll just work. and that's the secret to good programming."

Does anyone buy expired domains that had traffic targeted for your website? If so, how well does this work? I've never done it before but I've heard good things about it.

I've actually done this before with a couple of websites I owned in the past. I'd say it works about half the time. It all depends on how long the website has been unregistered, if it is still listed in the search engines and what "keyword" you are going for. It is a gamble like all promotion I guess.

I've heard of it but have never done it.

It would be interesting to see stats before and after.
