The Best Ways To View Archived Versions Of Web Pages

Web pages change quite often. What was there yesterday may not necessarily be there today. So what do you do when you want to see old version of web pages? You look at their ARCHIVES!

Web crawlers are constantly scouring the internet, saving and indexing. You can search this indexed content. Here are some FREE websites that you can use to do this:

WayBack Machine: Powered by the Internet Archive, this site allows you to search for and view old versions of web pages. Search using key URL’s and narrow the results by specific date. This one is BY FAR the best of the lot, with over 400 BILLION web pages archived.

———-► Archive-It / GigaBlast: These websites are virtually identical. Powered by the Internet Archive‘s ‘WayBack Machine,’ they allow you to search for and view old versions of web pages. Unlike the WayBack Machine, they also allow you to search using key words, not just URL’s.

Archive: Allows you to save current versions of web pages, as well as search for and view old versions of web pages. Search using URL’s.

WebCite: Allows you to search for and view old version of web pages. Search using URL’s, a specific date and/or a Snapshot ID.

The Coral Content Distribution Network: Allows you to search for and view old versions of web pages. Search using URL’s.

Time Travel / What Did It Look Like?: Powered by MementoWeb, these sites (both part of the same network) allow you to search for and view old versions of web pages. Search using URL’s and specific dates.

Search Engine Caches: All major search engines (Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc) allow you to view cached (saved) versions of web pages. Use their search engine to find the page you want. When the page shows up in the search results, there is an option to view the cached version.

[NOTE: There are several more, but they are all just re-hashes of the ones above.]

Stay conscious my friends.
