    Hello everyone!

    I am slowly finding some badass domains but when I check in archive.org it says, the robot.txt were blocked.
    Is it ok to use those domains? So I am using screenshots.com but one of the domain shows it's last screenshot were having chinese paragraphs/words. Is it also safe?

    Please advice. Thanks!

    I tend to avoid every domain that has chinese words. But, you can try to translate what those words are just to make sure it's not porn or something else that could hurt your rankings.

    Stay away from Chinese domains.
    Here is a solution regarding robot.txt.

    Because they are usually domains that been spammed to death and are worthless.

    Check backlinks profile of the domain and check whether the domain have links from spammy websites or are they cleaned. Domains with clean profile can be used to make PBN.

    if waybackmachine was blocked this is at least suspicious. There are also legit websites doing that. But there are tons of good domains out there. I stopped waisting all my time with "maybe" domains. I just go with domains where I have no doubts from the first moment. I would not take the time to further investigate a domain where waybackmachine was blocked. That saves a lot of time and my results in terms of ranking got significantly better.

    These few days archive.org says that a lot, keep refreshing a couple times to make sure it really is blocked and not just a glitch.

    Generally drop the domains if they have anything to do with Chinese characters. Its a sign of spam.

    Drop it. Unless the backlink profile is Chinese too and you are going to target the Chinese market with it :D

    There is another thread going on about the current problems with archive. Someone suggested logging in would improve performance, but I'm not sure if it ended up working out.

    Stay away from Chinese websites, it's just not relevant unless you are ranking chinese sites.

    As for the archive error, just move on if you get a error. There are so many domains to comb and only 24 hours a day. There are always better domains available for you to register.
