How to Find Lost Information on the Internet

Fighting Internet Censorship

Is Your Favorite Website Offline?

Have you gone to a website only to find it offline? Have you watched a good video, saw the website address and went to it only to find that it’s no longer online? As you know, Google, Facebook, Twitter and other sites are into censorship. If you start naming a group of people too much or if you have gone into too much detail of some cover-up, you might find that website offline. If you have your own website you have to be careful of what you put up. Well, there is one way to find out what these websites said, and it’s not high tech but something rather simple. Just go to www.archive.org and type in their browser the website address.

When you go to archive.org, you might have to go back to a further time than the most recent, as the website might have been offline for a long time so the most recent “snap shot” of it could be after it was offline. You might come to a page that says Go Daddy where the domain name is parked (where someone can purchase the old name), and not find anything. But going back further, you can find the original information.

Keep archive.org in mind when you are looking for “politically incorrect” Christian sites, too. You never know when these sites will be taken offline. When you do come to the site, I suggest you copy what information you are looking for, for your own records. This is one way to fight censorship.
