Your content is being archived

newauthoronline

Did you know that your site (well a snapshot of it’s contents) may well be preserved for posterity?

This remains the case even if you decide to delete your blog and/or website.

Anyone interested in exploring what information is held about their site can visit https://archive.org/ and search for archived material pertaining to their blog.

https://archive.org/is not a substitute for backing up your website (it only collects snapshots of a website’s contents).

It does, however offer a fascinating glimpse into sites, many of which are no longer operative.

WHAT YOU WILL SEE:

SELECT and CLICK the WEB icon

  1. This can have another use too! Whenever you go to a website and find it’s not working, just type in

    archive.org

    and then paste the website URL into it to see if perhaps a past version can be pulled up.

    E.G. I’ve had some problems with my http://antibrains.com website over the last few months. BUT… if you enter it into archive.org you’ll not only get the snapshot of my opening homepage, but you will ALSO find that the links on the sidebar of that homepage within the site are all functional and saved as well!

  2. I found that I have been cataloged on the archives.org many times since 2013. They even record how many people at any even time are viewing my blog site here on WordPress. Well, I hope I said something of importance or at least interesting.
