Let’s Go Wayyyy Back!

The Internet Archive is a Blast from the Past

Hmemory-lane-internet-archiveave you heard of the Way Back Machine from the Internet Archives? Well, if you’re in the mood for some nostalgia, head on over and enter your website’s URL. There you will see a history of how your website has changed (hopefully for the better) over the years. The URL does have to be active/live, or no history can be displayed.

Beyond a bit of nostalgia, this can be a good resource if you needed to see some old content on your site or even to snoop on your competitors!

Now, if you don’t want your website history to be shown for whatever reason (and there are certainly some valid reasons), you can edit your robots.txt file to deny Internet Archives from accessing your site and they will no longer be able to display your site archives. Simply add this (or ask your web master) to your file:

User-agent: ia_archiver
Disallow: /

Enjoy your journey down web-memory lane!
