    - Build new site with clean,simple template.
    - Publish new fresh contents
    - Submit disavow bad backlinks
    Then wait. But from my exp this domain will very hard to rank even google index it.

    It is easier to forget this domain and buy a new one.

    This right here. Buy a new domain and move on. You are going to need to build out the site with clean original content, then spend up to 3 months waiting for Google to respond to your request. My experience with getting penalties removed from a site for pure spam have been low. I made a few attempts in the past as test study and found it not worth attempting.


    Unless it is a branded site for a customer, it is not work the effort and time. Move in with a new domain.

    Out of interest, what did you pay for it?

    This would be the quickest and easiest option.

    Considering you paid $8, consider it as a "no loss" and move on. Lol sorry, if that is not good advice. Starting fresh is always a choice as others mentioned :)

    301 of penalized is useless. Google wont take it in consideration at all - I test it. Now before you do that mistake again, let me ask you - there are bazillion people scraping the Web for domains. Hundreds if not thousands professional domainers. Why do you think this domain with "high TF" was available for you to grab? Maybe because was so spammed that no one with any knowledge in domaining wont touch with a stick? If you want send it via PM to tell you why was penalized. Next time either learn how to check domains (Ahrefs - referring domains, anchors, traffic history, Majestic for Anchors and referring domains, Archive.org - history of the website) or just buy from a domain broker.

    If you were able to handreg the domain for $8, then the likelihood that it holds any naked value beyond SEO purposes is extremely low.

    Take the domain into the backyard and shoot it.

    Then, learn from this very small mistake and apply it in your next purchase.

    Check your registrars refund policy. I always refund the penalized domains.

    Use disabow to redirect only clean domains.

    Use it as an email domain for spam if you want to make something with the 8$ ;-)

    Yeah, not true. Google is not crawling them so you wont rip any benefit, nor will see the links in the search console.
