    Use the site operator in google search bar.

    site:domain.com

    If there are no results it means that the domain is not indexed by google and you should stay away from it.

    Check the backlink profile and anchor cloud. If there are spammy links and/or top 3 anchors used are money keywords then I would forget it and move to the next one.

    i used the site operator, it returns "did not match any documents" and also checkded the same at domain tools, it does have a history.

    whats confusing is the same results are returned in G for never registered domains, so is site operator results sure shot

    also if someone can help, do keyword domains still rank better as compared to non keywords, as i just read in few threads here, that Kw domains rank better, but the thread is pretty old
