Go to alexa.com. Once there, then can use their WayBack machine to visit older versions of your websites and pages. Many older articles and material is left forgotten, but can be retrieved using this. I’ve posted at least 10 articles that I’ve lost but found again on Alexa to ezine articles.
Excellent idea Edward! Thanks for giving me permission to share this idea with your fellow authors. I bet there are other authors who have published stuff on websites of theirs that they no longer publish and don’t have a backup of their content. This is a great way to get a 2nd chance to retrieve that content to create new articles.
Trivia: A few months ago, we elected to not have EzineArticles’s database to be included in the Way Back Machine’s database.
