Can I buy a domain that used to have spam on it and still rank?

Buying a domain name with lots of spam

Thinking of buying a domain name with lots of spam in the hopes of “renovating” it and actually getting it to rank? As explained in the video above, this is actually something that Google doesn’t recommend especially when the cost is quite significant. It’s always best to start with a new domain name in SEO with no spam reports which can handicap your web marketing efforts right off the bat.

Having mentioned that, there are still some pretty good reasons to buy an existing domain even if it is currently littered with so much spam. Perhaps you simply deem that particular domain as perfect for your business? Either way, there are a couple of things that you should know about buying such domains.

What you should know about spam domain names

Now the first thing that you need to consider before purchasing an existing domain name with lots of spam on it is whether or not you can actually restore it and get it to rank! There are two types of spam – manual spam and algorithmic spam. In the case of manual spam, all you have to do is clean out the content on the domain and submit a reconsideration request. Algorithmic spam on the other hand is a lot harder to deal with since you are dealing with tons of spam content created through an automated “churn and burn” web marketing tactic which often simply doesn’t end well.

Hence its important to figure out exactly the kind of spam you are dealing with right off the bat. The last thing you need is be the at the receiving end of a domain name that was driven so hard to the ground with spam that it would be a miracle if you can ever get it to rank regardless of how great it sounds or how it perfectly suits your business!

So what do you think? Can the purchase of such domain names be worth your while?
