    Situation: I want to buy some expired domain PR5.

    1/There are/were some backlinks, which I would like to utilize, and so is there in google some archive, where is past content?

    2/ If yes, can I repost it?

    Yup there is,

    http://archive.org/web/

    And yes,you can re-use the content as long as it's not indexed anywhere else.

    Cheers

    Be careful buying that domain. A real PR5 domain (expired, not dropped) will run you over 1k. People fake the PR using redirects. Just search PR Checker in google, and cover your bases.

    Good point Griggs, that should be my next question:

    Which parameters and in which tool should I examine, if I considering about buying expired domain?

    Edit:
    I mean, there r other parameters as well, which indicate, if it should be good investment, but which are they

    Go through the most powerful backlinks, and try to guess if they'll stay once the site changes hands. Site wide links often go away. Contextual links stick much better. Old looking sites (aka don't change much) are good. Go through as many as you feel comfortable with. Personally, if I were looking to buy a PR4+, I'd be spending all day researching. Analyze the backlink portfolio, and ignore the current PR for the most part. I use Majestic, but anything will work.
