With over 3 days to go the high bid sits at $12,505.
What makes this an interesting one, is that the site on the domain was a popular tech blog which was covered by Technorati.com which had to say about it:
“””Rich Internet Applications are all the rage these days – Ajax, Silverlight, Flex and Apollo are making headlines. This blog goes beyond the buzz to showcase what companies are doing, right now, these technologies, and highlights their applications.””
Actually the blog was RIA Pedia with RIA standing for “Rich Internet Applications”
As you might expect with a domain that used to be a popular blog there are a ton of backlinks 18,953 according to one report, a Page Rank of 7.
By comparison, Thedomains.com only has a page rank of 6 and DomainNameWire.com has a PR of 5.
And the domain is only 4 years old.
RIApedia was run by Mike Potter, who works for Adobe Systems Inc.
Interestingly Godaddy appraises the domain as worth only at $126.
Most of you know the original registrant still has time to redeem his domain after the auction but its sure in interesting domain.
