One strategy I've heard of: if you're getting recruiter spam, ask each of them, based on your resume, what kind of salary they could get you. Throw out any outliers or obvious liars, and take the average.

In my experience, recruiters offer more than the company is willing to offer. My final step in your plan would be to drop the values by 10 to 20 percent or so.
