I was mining for some domains today and found decent one, so I bought it somewhat more hastily than I normally would because I was in a rush. The site was in the medical industry; all links and anchors are clean and from .edu, hospitals and research departments. Archive shows the same site throughout 2002-2011 In 2012 it went up for auction. Heres where I fucked up: In 2013-2014 on archive.org only one screen each year is shown, and its a 408 Request Timeout: "The server closed the network connection because the browser didn't finish the request within the specified time". For some reason I assumed that meant it never sold at auction and wasnt an active site during that time (fuck you archive.org), but it was. After I bought it I noticed some pages of the site are still indexed in google with PR. They will show in the SERPs without "sitesite)(page-title)" needing to be used. The homepage however, is not indexed. One of the category pages still indexed in SERPs shows a title of "Home Renovating and Decorating | (old site title)" So clearly someone bought it at auction, set it up as a "home renovation" site and then dropped it for some reason. The fact that a PR3 medical site was picked up, rebranded, dropped, and the homepage isn't index worries me and seems obvious why. However, like I said its looks like no new links or anchors have been built from when it was originally a medical site. So unless the guy had a big sign saying "PBN!" I dont see how it could have gotten a penalty. Does this look like its clearly fucked and I have wasted 12$ and should let it die or is it worth looking into more?
