Hi mates! I have a new domain, and I want to know, how i could check it for penalties in Google.
I see so many many domains floating on domain auction
99% of domains are spammy or bizarre unrecognizable shit
I got so tired, so I just trash anything not indexed by G thesedays
Type in google site:domainhere.com
If it shows up, type domainhere.com. If the site doesn't show as #1, it has a penalty.
If not, it could just be deindexed because of not being picked up for a while. Check the history of the site on archive.org for any spammy looking changes (chinese, russian, dodgey niche like viagra, complete niche changes, redirects etc.).
Look in majestic / ahrefs / Moz for unrelated, spammy or asian/russian backlinks/anchor text.
always better to aim for new domain. If you found some "sexy" domain at auction there might be something fishy behind. I gave up wasting time at auctions - more and more crap, less and less "good catch" since 2009.
Thanks for replies. If domain was used like PBN(only 2 outbound links), could I use it for white money site?
yes, absolutely. But it will take time to dig it and good one are not less than $100 plus time and very careful study. Think: why should someone drop good "fat" domain suddenly? Maybe better to consider new one + articles + good backlinks instead? For $100 you can make a sure deal, than something else.
Add your domain to WMT and check it for manual actions.
Sir, I'd rather say never add your domain to WMT.
Google already knows too much and you don't want to feed it excessive information.
However, it is backward - I thought we check domain before we buy, not after ... Isn't?
Its like marry first and learn is she a ex-hooker with long criminal records behind. Love it!
What extra info are you feeding google by adding it to WMT?
Google already knows everything without you adding it to WMT.
I never understood this SEO myth.
So you think it's better don't add domain to WMT? And when the site will be build on this domain, should I add it to WMT?
The only way to know if the domain is penalized before you buy is checking its links profile + way back.
Absolooootely! btw, there is a website, i forgot the URL, but it shows immediately that this is kaput
as about WMT or so-called "console". It is not SEO-myth, it is well-known fact how ranking (not "Page Rank") assessment works in Google Inc.
I don't see the importance of Webmasters Tools, I don't see anything useful from of that you cannot get yourself using open source software and 15 grams of brains.
And, besides, this is not Google-lovers-forum.com, this is freaking Black Hat World. feel the difference?
I don't know why any members here shouldn't use WMT, i use it all the time, for tracking my SERP CTR and potential keywords that i can target.
For big keywords, an increase in a few % of CTR can make a real difference in term of traffic.
Moreover, well i love Google, it is the only reliable, free and stable source of high quality traffic that can convert like crazy.
who doesn't? besides, whats the point arguing - we only exchange ideas based on experience. Each one has its own, hence its called "forum".
Search Engine named Google is a tricky bitch, but it brings golden eggs. I haven't seen higher ROI than pimping it. Nothing even close.
