How to Find Old, Deleted Websites or Blog Posts: WayBack Machine and Google’s Cache (video)

The WayBack Machine Internet's ArchiveI’m creating a new Website that’s similar to one that I had years ago…a site that’s long ago deleted. I have the files from this site saved on an old laptop that barely boots up, and when it does, it lasts for no more than a minute or two.

Two Ways to Find Oldies

I went to the Internet’s archive, the WayBack Machine. I typed in my old URL, and my entire site came into view. I copied the text on each page, and pasted it in Notepad (to strip out any trashy code that may have been added by publishing the site in FrontPage), and pasted that text onto pages in the new blog. Worked great.

In a previous post, I’d written about how I’d deleted an article in my blog by mistake and how I was able to retrieve it in Google’s Cache (storage from the last time my site had been indexed). I’ve included instructions on how to do that in this video.

Good luck finding what you need. If you have some other ideas, please leave a comment below.

PEACE.
