How To Save URLs To The Wayback Machine On Demand

2014-05-12_17-15-54 Yesterday, Search Engine Land featured a post about the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine now providing access to more than 440 billion archived web pages back to 1996. As I've written about before on Search Engine Land and my infoDOCKET blog, the Wayback Machine is an absolutely essential resource for just about every web user.

Of Permanent Value: Archiving The Web

I love working for Ask.com as Director of Online Information Resources and also compiling and editing ResourceShelf and DocuTicker. Yes, it's a busy life but I'm very fortunate to do what I love and even get paid for it.
