    I found an EMD that would really be beneficial for making a new site on. The problem is that it was previously owned according to whois.domaintools, but archive.org, screenshots.com, and backlink checkers like Moz and Majestic don't show anything at all.

    Is there any other historic link checkers/web cache sites I could use to see if it was likely penalized before I buy it?

    I've had sites where it indexed well for its name, but ended up being absolutely buried for its target keyword due to a prior penalization that I missed. So I'd rather not take guesses based solely on whether it indexes or not.
