Hi there, my first post is here Bought a domain few weeks ago from godaddy. I didn't backorder the domain, i just went to godaddy searched for a domain name based on my target keywords and found a good one. Now, after a week or so, I open my webmaster tools (where i setup all the basic stuff like sitemap target and so on) and I see this message: It seems like the previous owner did some spamming on this domain. The nature of the site is a blog and I intend to work on it based on the results of my researches. I haven't posted any content yet, but submitted a re-evaluation request to google. They sad they will be back in a while or something like that. In the next few days I plan to post couple of articles (quality ones, no spam BS). Checked the backlinks taht point to my site (I thought there were none) and they seem pretty messy, if I could I would delete them all, but I don't have access towards these posts. Would be really grateful if somebody steered me in the right direction and shared their or their clients similar situation and the end result of it. Also, I plan to buy domains in the future as well, maybe even look for expiring domains and stuff, so how can I check in the future if a website is "unhealthy". One more thing ... If, and how, i disavow all of these links, will that be of any good at this stage? Thanks Alek PS It's my first post, so if this needs to go in another thread that's fine. Also, if I talk rubbish in some part of the post, I'm not a SEO expert, I just started out figuring it and how it works.
