How can I find a website I visited roughly 4 months ago?

Asked by toomuchcoffee911 (6876 points ) October 11th, 2010

About four months ago (June 13th to be exact), I visited a tumblog that had links to downloadable playlists. I downloaded one titled _Insomnia_and fell in love with it. Now I want to get more of the music but I can’t remember what the blog was called. How would I go about finding a lost website?

check your browser history for that date, assuming you have not deleted it. if you dont know how tell me what browser you use and ill give instructions.

the other option is to try searching for the same terms that you used when you originally found it. a long shot, but can sometimes work.

My browser (Safari) only goes back to September 10th, unfortunately.

In that case, your best bet is to try to retrace your steps from memory.

@toomuchcoffee911 in that case, you really have to either search on google using the terms you originally used. or, maybe, start searching for things you know are on that site for a fact. such as playlist names you remember, or bits of text you remember readin on there.

Do you use Google Desktop?

Sometimes when browsing, I vaguely remember the steps which took me to an interesting site. Maybe you were reading Wikipedia and came across an interesting subject. Then maybe you Googled it and came across a blog, which linked you to another blog, and so on. :)

I save all my history and +sign+ even archive it… it is a great reference tool

@toomuchcoffee911 Did you remember, stumble upon it, or followed any of the suggestions offered here?

toomuchcoffee911's avatar

I wasn’t able to use any of the suggestions just because I accessed the site so long ago.

I found it when I was looking through the list of the blogs I follow, and it happened to be one of them.
