    Was thinking of using an expired domain for a site but it does not show up in wayback machine, can you ask for your website to be excluded or something? Seems fishy that I site with metrics would not be in there ...

    Yes, you can always block the bots of archive.org. Check it at screenshots.com

    Most of the PBN owners, if they hide their sites, also hide Archive.org. So if you see "forbidden" or similar crap, it's better to avoid it, if you aren't sure what was there in that time.

    The fact that the domain doesn't show in Wayback at all, is because it was probably crap. I've seen a few such domains, but mostly they had low number of RD and were quite uninteresting SEO wise. Skip it and continue searching.
