Picking up Deleted Blogs

  1. Is it possible to pick up blog domains that others have claimed but deleted or not using?

  2. Not unless the blogger wants to give you an unused one - WordPress..COM will not take a blog away from someone and give it to you.

    Deleted sites are not recycled

  3. It's not possible to acquire a deled blog URL, as deleted blog URLs here are not recycled. That's why 3 warnings are given and why a vertfication link in an email that must be clicked is sent in order to accomplish deletion.

    Blogs belong to those who registered them. There is no expiration date on blogs unused or otherwise. If you can make contact on your own then there is a means of a consenting blog owner to transfer the blog to another username account. http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/#transferring-your-blog-to-another-user-or-account In the case that there is no contact information Staff will not breach the privacy policy and provide you with an email address.

  4. You can register another blog with a similar name. http://en.support.wordpress.com/register-a-blog/

    Or you can register a domain vis a domain mapping upgrade and it will not matter what the underlying .wordpress.com address is.
