    That domain bought a little bit of spew into my mouth. It's been penalised and removed from Google's index. Linking that to your money site is just asking to be bent over.

    Just a quick question, how can you check if a site has been penalized, other than deindex?

    Thank you for sharing, was good to see an example of what kind of domains you don't want to pay money for.

    I would draw a distinction between faking a metric and manipulating a metric.
    And yes, it is indeed very easy to manipulate PA/DA.

    And for those who can't look it up themselves... here's the anchor cloud of that domain.

    Viagra spam. No thanks. one of the most important metric to check it to make sure the site is indexed or not.

    Usually, a quick search for the exact domain name on Google will do the trick (it's ranking really low for its brand name if penalized). Although, it isnt a very accurate method but it weeds immediately especially if I'm checking a lot of sites in a short amount of time.

    I suggest though that you use Ahrefs in checking out the anchor text diversity as well as the incoming links regardless if the site is penalized or not. That way, you'll only keep non-penalized domains with solid backlink profiles by checking the off-site SEO.

    I usually check backlink profile first, then wayback machine and so on.

    I've noticed (though not analysed) a decent relationship between getting Royally Shafted By Panda (RSBP) and sites that have mixed language links. Korean, Russian and Chinese seem to be the most problematic. I would check that this site hasn't already been slapped - it looks ripe for it.
