    I've recently purchased a domain for my PBN and there is a lot of old content on Archive. My question is, how do I resurrect it?

    I tried used HTTrack to download the site, but it only downloads the Archive pages and not the old site. What is the easiest way to download the old site?
    Thanks.

    Dont remember the name but there is a service that does exactly this. Not in a great manner but you can use wordpress i think. Just google it.

    You can do it manually if you know some coding or use some of the services

    Code:
    waybackdownloader.com

    Protip: if you want to remove the crap added by archive.org (archive.org header and scripts) , append id_ to the end of the date string in the url.
    Example:

    [...] web.archive.org/web/19981111184551/[...] -> Header shown

    [...] web.archive.org/web/19981111184551id_/[...] -> No header

    I cut n paste; I've tried the services and they are limiting - the site is in hard coded HTML even if you choose the wordpress option. Basically the old existing pages are hard coded and the wordpress option lets you add new content with a theme that matches the hard code - too limiting for my use. I'm okay with html/css but never built a pure html site in my life (wordpress and shopify only).

    The next time that I do this will probably involve a Filipino VA.

    Does your software remove all references to web.archive.org in the resurrected webpages?
