Research tools: The Way Back Machine UPDATE:

With censorship soaring to new heights, it’s become commonplace… You click on what you anticipate being a valuable source of information relating to your research, only to discover that the article (webpage) has been deleted.

From Uncensored issue #70

from the publisher:

Well, you may be in luck, as there is a relatively unknown utility known as the “Way Back Machine” (, managed by the good folks at Barnes and Noble, that has been crawling and archiving thousands of webpages every day since 1996. And they offer all their archives (792 billion to date) free of charge and without even requiring you to create an account.

To illustrate how the Way Back Machine works, we’ll use the link below to an article that is referenced in Uncensored issue #68, but has since been removed from the hosting website (Pfizer).

To see if the Way Back Machine contains any archives of this particular article, we simply open a browser and go to, type-in or copy/paste the article’s URL from above and press the <Enter> key.

If any archives of the webpage are available, a timeline will be displayed with the most recent attempted capture dates indicated by either orange or blue circles.

While it is not immediately clear from this example, the availability of the webpage is indicated by the following:

  • Dates that aren’t highlighted indicate no captures were attempted or taken.
  • Dates highlighted with Orange circles indicate that a capture was attempted, but the webpage was not available.
  • Dates highlighted with Blue circles indicate a capture (or captures) of the webpage are available and the number of available captures is indicated by the size of the circle.
  • Hovering over any Blue circle will display the available captures for that day and selecting (clicking) a snapshot will open that archive for viewing. Standard Print and Download icons are located in the upper-right.
  • A 21-minute video providing complete instructions and advanced capabilities is available at:

As censorship heats up and free thought becomes an increasingly rare commodity, we appeal to our readers to support our efforts to reach people with information now being censored elsewhere. In the last few years, Uncensored has itself been censored, removed from the shelves of two of our biggest NZ retailers – Countdown Supermarkets and Whitcoulls Bookstores – accounting for 74% of our total NZ sales.

I have a lovely partner and 3 very active youngsters. We live in the earthquake ravaged Eastern Suburbs of Christchurch, New Zealand. I began commenting/posting on Uncensored back in early 2012 looking for discussion and answers on the cause and agendas relating to our quakes. I have always maintained an interest in ancient mysteries, UFOs, hidden agendas, geoengineering and secret societies and keep a close eye on current world events. Since 2013 I have been an active member of community, being granted admin status and publishing many blogs and discussion threads. At this time I'm now helping out with admin and moderation duties here at Uncensored where my online "life" began.
