Question if this does go to a aution what would your bid on this domain be. Not planning on using it for a website.
Personally with that kind of history and backlinks I'd be looking at getting in touch with the previous owners and seeing if I could get the website and also the domain via the grace period the registrars put on the domain. Rather than just risking it going through the auction process.
Looks like I am stuck with the auction so anybody have a suggested price they would pay for this.
I have a feeling this is a old domain name archive is broke right now so can't check.

There may be a few directories that employ screenshots that might have an image of a footer with contact info or the like.
You have to take on the mentality of a starving animal if you really want to be good that the game you are playing. The possibilities are endless. :)
And, yes, there's "those guys" - mentioned by Philosopher - who might be a good solution in your case, bwnbwn. Heck, because that's the case I'll let this one "about them" slide 'cus . . I dunno . . maybe they're behaving better lately? :p (No reference to you, Philospher.)

Past months bought some really good domains through the auction and very few from owners due to the domain maket has changed and the domainers know this but the small owners still think it is an open market.
That said what would your guys with a little more experience in this be willing to pay for this domain at auction.
PS already investigated the backlinks the domain has some good org etc links pointing to it.
IF you are bidding against them BUT you can profit a bit better from the traffic than they can as an enduser 'consumer/converter' of traffic vs. just gleaning value from PPC clicks then I give you the edge at auction. You may choose to bid higher because you're not just going after the value of the PPC clickstream.
I think the real (and unrealized) value in expired traffic domains is the value that an enduser/consumer/converter of that traffic could bring to the equation. For that I have no formula except to consider the likelihood of the traffic converting and the value of a converted sales lead to the beneficiary of that traffic.
Hope that makes sense.
Depending on the niche and the quality of the backlink profile I could see myself chasing it into low 4 figures - though ideally would like to grab for mid 3 figures.
