Author Posts December 22, 2009 at 7:20 am #430539 raincoasterMember So, I was checking myself out on the Wayback Machine: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://raincoaster.com/ and I find I haven’t been indexed since May 29, 2008. Anybody got any ideas why? Trust me, my blog has NEVER been private! The blog I need help with is raincoaster.com. December 22, 2009 at 7:21 am #430726 raincoasterMember Um, once again that link is: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://raincoaster.com/ December 22, 2009 at 7:26 am #430727 thesacredpathStaff June 2008 for me. Did they run out of storage space? December 22, 2009 at 8:12 am #430729 raincoasterMember Dunno. Is that for your wp.com blog or your independently-hosted one? December 22, 2009 at 8:52 am #430730 markStaff I just tried http://mark.wordpress.com http://barry.wordpress.com http://ma.tt http://gigaom.com http://raincoaster.wordpress.com and none have an entry for 2009 I also tried http://osx.iusethis.com/ http://tamba2.org.uk/T2 and neither have an entry for 2009 So it looks like they changed something or they broke? It’s certainly nothing here – the bot that crawls sites checks and acts on the robots.txt and we do not block it. December 22, 2009 at 9:07 am #430732 raincoasterMember Maybe there’s a waiting period before they post your archive? December 22, 2009 at 9:24 am #430734 markStaff Why are there no recent archives in the Wayback Machine? It generally takes 6 months or more for pages to appear in the Wayback Machine after they are collected, because of delays in transferring material to long-term storage and indexing. http://www.archive.org/about/faqs.php#103 Strange. But their Announcement forum has no news. December 22, 2009 at 9:30 am #430735 raincoasterMember And May, 2008 is WAY more than six months ago.
