    I finally managed to scrape what looks like a decent weebly web 2.0, it's 35 PA and had 9 backlinks, looks pretty decent.

    How can I check if this is safe to use for my money site? I don't want to bring anything negative or waste my time re-building this as a web 2.0 but I've been having problems scraping and I finally think I found one that's useable

    Web 2.0 can usually handle spam so I wouldn't worry too much. Test test test so you know for yourself

    Does archive.org hold copies of weebly sites? Or does robots.txt block them?? If they do, you could have a look and see if there's spam in the past there for this address.

    If it has 9 backlinks, then it's not really "nice", it's fairly weak and that PA is far from amazing as well.

    Regarding history of web 2.0s, don't even bother with that. Web 2.0s can handle almost anything and unless it's brutally spammed to death with viagra and casino anchors, it will be just fine. And with 9 backlinks it's almost impossible for it to be penalized or anything. Bottom line - Don't bother about history of web 2.0s, there's really no point in that.
