The whole process is very simple and you will find it very useful if you are researching a topic and you will find that links you have saved for weeks or even months no longer work.

Archive.org’s Wayback is probably the best tool for recovering any deleted web page. It’s part the Internet Archive, a nonprofit that tries to replicate everything on the Internet. It holds over 435 billion web pages, which may not be everything on the Internet, but it’s still impressive. Pages were captured multiple times, for example, we used the Wayback Machine to look at the NDTV Gadgets homepage spanning several years and see our designs evolve over time.

Here’s how to use it.

  1. Open the Wayback website.

  2. Enter the URL the missing website or webpage to open in the box at the top.

  3. click Browsing History.

  4. You will see a calendar view. Select the year at the top, then select the day from the list below.

    search engine cache

    If you’re looking for a recently deleted page, it may be easier to find it a search engine like Google, Yahoo, or Bing. As long as you can find the page in a search engine, you should also be able to load a backup copy the page. Here’s how it works:

    1. Open your favorite search engine. Google’s cache is very good, so we recommend that you use it.

    2. If you know it, paste the link the missing page into the search bar, or just search the page to find the link you need.

    3. Below the blue text the link, you’ll see a line of green text, the URL of the webpage.click down arrow The green URL text next to it.

    4. click cache. This will show you the saved version the desired page, with details on when it was backed up.

    5. If this page doesn’t load properly, you can try clicking plain text version In the upper right corner. This will lose all images in the page, but if it doesn’t load properly, this will still give you the important data you need.
