Exclamation Expired domains myths

I'm going to buy an expired domain which have good metrics, registered in 2008. But i heard before going to buy any expire domain we must check domain by this query "site:abc.com" if google never show any result by domain the site never indexed ever. Is that true?

That may not be necessarily true.

What if the previous owner put in the robots.txt not to index the whole site prior to putting it up for sale? It would not be in Google's index then.

You might try archive.org to see if you can find an archived copy of what was there previously.

I think its not right. Google index all the website and if find any problem than it add in sandbox. But even after it remove and again provide the chance. So, you can buy that domain and follow the SEO terms.

You can buy the domain, but the thing is like you have to check website has penalized or any porn or spam site from way back machine. you can easily track what website history past. from that, you can take it forward to buy a domain.

As our forums members said, you need to check it's history in the archive .org and check whether it's robots are blocked or not. If you feel it has some worth to spend on it then go for it else you can register a new domain and start work on it because these days Google's algorithms are dynamic, real time and more accurate. If you put real efforts surely your website will be awarded with good ranking.
