    Its good you got new domain, but have u checked all back links?, is they banned by google or not? Or penalized for some reasons?
    Check these all possibilities.

    How long ago did the domain expire? If there is nothing there, and it hasn't been there for awhile, it probably has lost whatever rankings it has. Google doesn't just rank a web page because of the domain. The actual content of the web page is going to matter a great deal. It will lose whatever page rank it has, and then after you put a website up on the domain, the page will be judged based on the content you place on it. The backlinks it has now have nothing to do with the content you place on the page, and the owners of the websites being linked from can remove them once the domain has expired, and the old website no longer exists. No one wants to ruin their reputation by having links on their sites to a website that no longer exists. So, once you have a new website associated with the new domain, you probably will have to start over, and build your reputation yourself.

    joeroxx made a good point. In addition, I think you should see the backlinks of that domain if they are relevant to the content that you want to use. If not, then it is better to buy new one unless you want to invest some time and effort in disavowing those links and build new ones.

    Agree with the above, it all starts with the backlinks. Especially if has thousands. Use the following tools to check for any spam and pr: Ahrefs, MajesticSEO, OpensiteExplorer, and also verify what the site use to look like with these two tools: Archive.org and Screenshots.com.

    Hope this helps. And for anyone else that doesn't want to go thru the hassle of finding quality spam free expired domains, you can find them here at DomainPeel.com
    Good luck!

    We can't register the same domain again .i.e with the same name of the domain which has expired?

    Fresh link makes more influence than old links, when a domain is expire everything will be reset and back to sandbox. The site has to rebuilt it reputation to gain trust from search engine. Else anyone who purchase a popular expire domain will immediately get rank easily.

    The question makes no sense. There is no "domain with the same name of the domain which has expired" Each domain name can only be created once. Once a domain name is created and registered, it belongs to the person who created and registered it. In order to maintain ownership of the domain the owner must renew the registration. If the domain name registration expires, the website associated with that name can no longer be accessed using that name. When you buy it, and then register it, you are now the legal owner of the original domain name, not a "domain with the same name of the domain which has expired". When you register with a web hosting service with that domain name, anyone entering that domain name will now see a pre-designed template indicating the domain has been "parked" or that the website is "under construction" until you actually upload a website to their server.
    I may not have that exactly right, but the general idea is there - there is no such thing as a "domain with the same name of the domain which has expired".

    First question are links relevant to your niche? If yes you can use it, 2nd are they Good enough? keep it otherwise look for new domain.
    As suggested earlier.. I would rather suggest you to go for new domain.
