    Hi friend, Way back machine is not working for some of my websites and other compititor’s websites too.
    And whois or tools like this tell us the domain age not the age of the websites.

  3. Hi Harsh, my little blog recently was marked as “pure spam” and blocked from google search. Later, i found that this domain name previously owned by a russian spammer. Though i filed a reconsideration request from google, which was approved and the site is now listed back.. but the old spammers search results still show on google. What do you recommend? Thanks
