    I'm curious how I should check if a domain is blacklisted by Google before I buy the actual domain. Blacklisted as in not indexed due to spam or something.

    The fastest way to know if you have been blacklisted by Google is checking if you are not being crawled by Googlebot. You can find this in Webmaster Tools just by going to your site in Webmaster Tools, then clicking on Diagnostics and finally clicking on Crawl Stats. If you'll see it go to zero and stay at zero then that's bad news, you're blacklisted!

    Search the website url in Google and you will be on your way to find the blacklisted or not. There are some online tools, but the best method is to search url in Google to find the real culprit.

    Check if its indexed and also check the quality of backlinks pointing to it. Use wayback machine to check what the site was about and decide whether it was a legit domain. If a domain is not indexed, its best to avoid buying.

    To everyone saying to do a simple Google Search: you can't if the domain hasn't been registered yet.
    Thanks to everyone for providing the links.
