Domain name etc.

6 years 8 months ago #104804 by johnniek2
Domain name etc. was created by johnniek2
I have found a good domain name that has keywords inside and sounds good to remember,
tough on whois.com I could only found that that domain used to be owned from someone and wayback machine doesnt give me not to much info...

my question is are there any free tools that can show me if that domain used to be used in spammy purposes or did the webmaster use any black hat methods before I buy the domain?

I couldnt find any backlinks so far...

any suggestions would be good

Hi johnniek2,

Try using Alexa site to have some statistics related to traffic: www.alexa.com/
That may give some information about which kind of site was using that domain, the audience, the contents, etc.

Looking forward to help you

Kind regards,
Valentín

that one states the same like others:
We don't have enough data to rank this website.
same at ahrefs and seomajestic...

no citation flow no DA no PA... no backlinks but it was registered from 2007 till 2011...

and wayback machine gives me 2 thumbnails that show 1 heading and 1 phrase... but I see an optimized title tag, which triggers the suspicious to me?

There is no much we can know about the reputation of this old domain.

You may use this service as reference to check general reputation: www.borderware.com/
Add the domain in this format: yourdomain.any and see if the result is enough positive for you.

Kind regards,

by.any you mean .com?
well it says 50/50
good and bad

but at the end if no links with good content we should build reputation?
what do you think.?

when I looked ad wayback machine it looked like someone registered it only because good keyword domain but either to layz to work on it or jut to have ownership?

for update I have added couple of my domains that have excellent rankings... its 50/50 for all of them :-)

Hi Johnnie,

Yes

Of course, legitimate content with good SEO practice build the reputation of a website in general cases.

when I looked ad wayback machine it looked like someone registered it only because good keyword domain but either to layz to work on it or jut to have ownership?

Can be both. Some people may register a domain to promote temporarily an idea, product or service with Adwords. In that case didn't matter the quality of the site, just get traffic.
Is just an idea of many possibles :)
