Buying a domain name which has already been contaminated by spammers will generate a lot of problems. Matt Cutts generates tips to avoid this situation. Matt Cutts has officially appeared in a web video in order to resolve queries which have been posted from a Google follower and a website owner who accidentally brought a bad domain.
His response was based on the ways and techniques used to understand if a domain has been in vast trouble with Google before. The first step according to technologists and SEO engineers was to do a site colon search using the domain name. Check the results generated, if there are no noticeable results even if the domain has a lot of content it means that the website is riddled with spam.
Start by a simple search:
Simply chop off the “.com” or “.org” part of the website and search on the Internet using only the name. If there is pure unadulterated content on the website you are bound to get results. Google techies say that logging on to archive.org is also a great option. All previous forms of the website which are riddled with spam and are auto generated are displayed.
This information is vital to you if you have been considering making a purchase decision regarding the domain name. It’s also good to see a first hand report of the website traffic analysis and pinpoint some trends which have been normally recurring.
How to identify spam Signs which predict disaster?
The worst thing which can happen to a website owner is when he/she gets into a situation where the domain name is unable to get indexed even after a lot of effort. In this case there is really no option apart from sending a reconsideration request and even that is not a guarantee of indexing acceptance.
Google inherently disapproves of spam and it refuses to show up spam riddled domains in the search engine pages even though the content is full of relevant keywords. Whenever a website domain purchaser is making a buying decision he should always do a thorough background check to see whether search engine queries made with the domain name in question are coming up with achievable results.
Check for content duplicity:
If you conduct search for a particular domain name using a specific term and the result is full of similar looking content demonstrated pages then it’s a sign of trouble. This essentially means that the content in the website is copied, spammed or heavily inspired from somewhere.
There are programmers like content weaver and spinner which auto generates questionable quality content by using software. The problem is that apart from turning off customers who are approaching the domain name a spammed website creates lots of other issues. The search engine rankings will always be quite bad and the entire business objectives will be lost.
Google will automatically mark the content as spam and after a few days you will receive a message from Google asking you to remove the content. Its best to follow simple tips underlined above to detect spam before buying a domain name of your choice.
