    So I found a domain for sale with loads of backlinks and 252 .edu ones. The thing is that all backlinks are spam and the domain is out of the index in the big 3. Will it be hard to get it back in the index? Will all those backlinks count if I get it back in? Or shall I just try and see?

    If the domain is banned, doesn't that mean their is zero chance at all to get back into a search engine? I wouldn't buy it!

    I think that once you clean the site up, you can request that the ban be lifted. I found an article that covers it.
    Code:

    That being said, I think I'd skip the domain unless I could get it cheap just incase I couldn't get it unbanned.

    If some of those 252 .edu are sending a fair amount of traffic then i'd say yes. G0091e is not the only traffic source.

    I don't think it has any traffic. I was just thinking that the domain will be niiiice if those links had any seo power if I managed to get the domain back in google.

    I will take the domain if it is not too expensive.

    Give it a try and even it can't be unbanned from search engines, you won't lose much.
