TBT Wayback Machine – A Trip Down Memory Lane

TBT Wayback Machine - JO Social Branding

It’s Throwback Thursday so where are we headed today? This time, I am unveiling a time machine. The Wayback Machine is a website that allows you to revisit websites of the past. Return to what your blog looked like when you first launched, check out your old MySpace account (if you remember your username) and more.

The Wayback Machine is an internet archive with over 400+ billion pages archived over time. (http://archive.org/web/)

  • Simply put in the URL you wish to go back in time to.
  • Click ‘Browse History’.
  • Select the archive date of the website or blog highlighted in blue.
  • Here is an example of the archive of this site. To take a trip down memory lane, first choose the year and month, then select the date highlighted with the blue circle. Voilà!

    This is a great tool to revisit old versions of your blog and watch your site evolve over time.

    What do you think of the Wayback Machine? Are you brave enough to take a trip back in time?
