    Hello, I was shopping around for a domain for a new blog I want to start, and I ran across a site that somehow had 160 backlinks on alexa, and got it for $10.

    Do these backlinks give it much more value? or is it all with the traffic on the site?

    Really depends on where the backlinks are and what your new blog is going to be about. could be just old data that has not been updated. Have you checked those sites to see if indeed the links are still on there.

    Maybe someone ditched the domain because it had been hit. Should have checked it first.

    i tried doing "site:sitename" in google, and it did come up as first result, so that would lead me to believe that google hasn't like deleted it or something.

    I also have written a few articles already, and have googled "articlename" "sitename" and although it wasn't first result, I did find the articles within the first few pages of google.

    Because of these facts, do you think that the site still could be negatively hit in some way and i should just not even bother?

    If you're not sure what you're doing, you can end up wasting time on domain that is worse than a brand new domain. I advise you to contact @Nargil - that's what he's doing for living and he's making sure the domains he sell are promoted and clean.
