    Question about domains
    Ok - I was looking at expired domain names and I started wondering, if the previous owner did something that got them black listed by Google.... that wouldn't transfer over to the new owner of the domain would it? Does goggle clear the domain once it expires?

    Which leads to me to wonder if a persistent black-hater consonantly goes through domain names, does google ever penalize the IP? And if it that is the case it would be possible to be assigned a bad IP by your host.

    Maybe the best way to find out is to email someone at google, yahoo, etc. I emailed yahoo last week and actually had a real person from yahoo call my house the next day and talk to me. (My wife thought that I had gotten into some kind of trouble.)

    What happens with the domain stays with the domain as far the search engine are concerned, at least Google. You would need to contact them and plead your case to try and get it unbanned. I know people who have successfully done it.

    How would you know if a domain you want to purchase, was a banned domain?

    TTW,

    http://whois.sc/domain.com

    Scroll down to Blacklist Status (next to the thumbnail) but, of course, replace 'domain.com' with the actual dom

    And if you buy a recycled domain unaware that it's blacklisted, and put it on the same IP # as your other domains, you might find them all in the toilet.

    About 70,000 or so domains are deleted every day IIRC. For google to penalise those for new wowners is ridiculous, to say the least.

    One day they'll run out of domains to blacklist.

    Best tip is to find out if it was previously owned by an affiliate.

    Just a note to those using whois.sc

    It will soon change to http://www.domaintools.com/

    I use whois.sc daily and didn't see the need for the upgrade, but embrace change, don't fear it

    When I first started I bought an expired domain name that was blacklisted. The website use to give out free email addresses and was based in Bulgaria. I sent an email to google and they put my domain back in almost right away. I will never buy an expired domain ever again though.

    Ouch. So google does blacklist IP's as well as domains?
