    Hey,
    I'm looking for a way to find out if domain banned from google and can't be indexed,
    The thing is that I need to find out before buying the domain.

    For those who going to ask why didn't you search on google/BHW before you post -
    I've tried to find an answer, I found that most of the answers are "Try to find if pages indexed in google"... How can I do that if the domain is not indexed and the last time that the site was up (By Wayback Machine) was at March? I also know that there is no tool that tells the answer but I have some information so we can learn and find out if it's banned.

    The main reason of the suspicious is because that (Info from Ahrefs) -
    The referring domains went down (maybe because deindexing?).

    The quality of the backlinks

    Some more information -
    Moz :
    DA - 29
    PA - 41
    Spam Score - 2/17
    Root Domains - 84
    Total Links - 861
    [​IMG]

    Some of you can ask - "Buy the domain and find out..." The domain isn't .net/.com it's local domain (.co.il) and the price of these domains is not the same as .com for example.


    By seeing this information, Do you think it's banned?

    Moz metrics are good but also check if backlinks are spammed or over optimized anchor text.
    Check archive history if domain was turned into something completely different like it was obviously re-purposed into PBN or by an SEO.
    Check the WHOIS history to see if it was previously penalized.

    That decline in ahrefs doesn't look good. He was probably buying a service and cancelled subscription for some reason.

    No, it being deindexed does not change the inbound metrics. I'd say this domain has a probability of having been spammed.

    What I'd do next is just throw its name around on google and see what comes up. Spammed domains will show up in several footprints left behind by certain methods.

    By archive the site didn't change since 2007.
    About the anchor, The most anchors are the domain name/URL.
    With this LTD I can't check WHOIS history :(

    Yep,
    It's a website without articles (Just one in the index),
    The design is ugly if it helps.

    I've decided to take risk and buy the domain because the stats from Moz.
    I will update if the domain blacklisted/banned.

    Thanks everyone for helping.

    If it is penalized you can put in a reconsideration request with google. Its not something ive ever had to do so im not sure how it will affect the domains metrics afterwards.

    That's the only definitive way to find out. You mentioned that in your post so I didn't suggest it, but it's what I would do.

    How much would it cost you to simply buy that domain and go on?!

    That is the best way to go as there is no real way to check if it's banned on google or not, all these metrics, archives etc. only can give you a clue about what has happened with it in the past. Good luck!

    After you put the site online and you can see googlebot activity in server logs - that is a good sign.

    Well check the hosting history as well. If the site has not been hosted snce 2007 (at the time where you seen the last Archive.org snapshot), it should be fine imo. Just based on this information.

    Check domaintools screenshots, archive.org, anchors, backlinks. The first 3 should give you a good idea of whether the domain is or isn't fine. And since you have already hosted, you can plug it into a separate Google webmaster tools and make sure whether it's fine. Just use a new fresh gmail, proxy and incognito mode at the very least.

    After I bought the domain I bought an hosting and updated the DNS to the hosting DNS and uploaded basic HTML file with few words (That was yesterday 30/12/16).
    Today the site still not indexed (Yeah I know it's too soon to check if the site indexed in google and usually it takes more time) but I've connected the domain to a new google webmaster account and tried to "Fech as Google", It's giving that -
    [​IMG]
    Does it mean that google crawled my website and it can be indexed?


    Thanks.

    Check the manual penalties in that Webmaster Tools interface.

    And one page with a few words may not be enough to get the domain indexed even if it's perfectly fine.

    It gives me this message on both (with www and without www) properties.
    I guess that this message means that the site isn't banned/penalized by google? :)

    That means, that the domain is perfectly fine. Build it up and add some content on it. :)
