    I recently brought a domain from Sedo, a really good one, seemed such a good price....

    anyway... created a great looking site, lots of good content, added the site to google webmaster tools... but the site would never seem to index at all, no messages from google or anything as to why...

    a bit of research shows i brought a domain that had been previously penalized and the penalty still hadn't been removed...

    i could tell this as i used a tool that lets you see screenshots of what the previous domain user used to have as their site... i could immediatly tell it was pure spam...

    anyway.. i think there are a few tools out there.. but i found this one really good, it specificly shows your the date and screen capture throughout the domains life course...

    Plenty of people know about it but it was worth sharing. I love browsing the web archive even just for a look. I bought an expired domain once that was car related. Checked the web archive and the site had several hundred articles on it all in depth by someone with knowledge. I reckon the old boy must have past on and the site died with him...copy/paste !
