    All of it what James said in the video is exactly how I think and work for over 22 years and I always thought (almost) everybody is like that knowing how to use search engines and archive dot org ... why? ... because I think it is (practical) "obvious".

    ... that is one of my flaws: assuming "most people" use common sense

    Yes, James is presenting several remedies for broken links and in his report: "How to Find Deleted Videos - Questions For Corbett #081" he shows several ways to locate "lost" or "deleted" videos (on the web - not your hard drive ).

    On that note as I've said in an earlier post here, it is rather important to include for every link also the title and if possible the originator of the content - in order for your descendants to find your contents too.

    Hi John, you're very welcome to put teaching posts here in this "404 - How to find broken links" thread. You're speciality in common sense will be a good fit here.


    And Michi too. I'm usually more multimedia orientated myself, and that's an even hotter teaching topic I'd like to see plenty of.


    Assuming we can't halt the march of tyranny overnight, the vanishing work of dedicated truthers is important enough to keep tabs on in a couple of ways. It's good to keep it around as much as possible and it's useful to know what's getting the chop, as in the old saying "if you're getting flak you must be over a target".

    Not all dead links are censorship of course, probably not even half of them, but censorship of the DELETE variety is informative to observe.

    So, here I sum up the different solutions when encountering broken links.

    1. Wayback Machine: When you click on a link which leads to a "page not found" or similiar, head over to https://web.archive.org/ and paste your link into the search bar. If that page was saved in the past, you can then choose a date in the calendar and see how that page looked like at that date.

    2. Google site search: Sometimes a website admin may move old content to some other page of his website. So you can do a search for a specific phrase on his website like so: Let's say, the link was https://www.website/articles/post.php and you know the post contained a phrase like "ancient tottenham monuments", well than you type in the address bar:
    site:https://www.website "ancient tottenham monuments"

    3. Search on less "restricted" websites for your sought-after content: Those are https://yandex.com/
    https://www.startpage.com/ or https://www.ecosia.org/ or https://search.brave.com/

    4. Search for deleted YouTube videos on https://altcensored.com/ Here you can use the same suffix of your YT video link. For example your YT video link was https://youtube.com/watch?v=abcdefghijk then use: https://altcensored.com/watch?v=abcdefghijk

    5. Search your missing videos on alternative video sites: https://odysee.com/ or https://www.bitchute.com/ or https://d.tube/ or https://gab.com/ or the many other alternatives which ExomatrixTV posted here: https://projectavalon.net/forum4/sho...=1#post1395887

    Over and out - Michi

    If you type in google: site:whynotnews.eu + any key-word or exact (unique) phrases between two quotation marks you get only search results of the "site:name target" but always keep in mind google CAN filter or censor 'unwanted' content!
    • In some of the search results you can see the option "cached" (which is a backup!) in rare occasions even cached content can be censored and it may be available for years and captured & logged/copied by alternative media researchers to realize the cache-link (back up source) is not available anymore later on.
    You can even search in a sub-section of a specific site like: site: projectavalon.net/forum4 + any key-word or exact (unique) phrases between two quotation marks.

    The instruction "site + "double dot" + name of site (without using "http://" nor "https://" nor "www") should be connected in one phrase without empty spaces in between ... but "the automated project avalon forum smiley settings" mess things up to show how it must be done exactly for it to work.
    • (would be nice to have a specific command in text to temporary disable automated text to smiley conversions).
    If you type in google without "site:" + whynotnews.eu + any key-word or exact phrases between two quotation marks you get different results ... most likely lots of troll-sites & corrupt "fact checkers" sites and alleged "debunking sites" to defame, misrepresent, misinform, smear, slander, false accusations, tons of unchecked & unchallenged (tunnel vision) assumptions etc. etc.

    I hope I may have helped some Avalonians and some non-member visitors from around the world to have new practical insightshow to become a much more efficient "conspiracy researcher" or "suppressed news" researcher

    While the shown scenario and solutions described a deleted or moved website content, to stay with the thread subject "404" there are other possibilities:

    a) an incorrect URL: for example a poster may have provided the following link: https://www//website.com (instead https://www.website.com) Check the address for incorrectly added or missing or mistyped parts.
    b) the website is actually down (or parts of it): This may be due to the owner editing his pages. (or someone else is messing with it, like a hacker.)
    c) the website has moved to a new registrar: the owner may have transfered to a new web host and hasn't been registered yet.
    d) Problem with browser cache: I remember some forum member couldn't access a website while others could. The solution is to clear the browser's cache and restart the browser

    ... have I forgotten anything?

    Any clever 'Advanced Driving' on the internet is good to post.

    It may only apply to a very reduced group of PC users though. I don't use them but I get an impression the hand held devices are pretty crippled for anything beyond blinkered browsing.

    Interactive task sharing would be good too. There's only so much one person can get skilled up at in one lifetime.
