1:15 AM - Blog recovery using icerocket.com

I hope that all of you who have checked out the Cache Recovery Utility found it pretty easy to use. After all, there isn't much that you are required to do - just enter your blog address, choose the cache source and hit the button. I apologise for short number of entries in the source list, but I couldn't find a way to include other search engines as they use a different way to retrieve the cache of a page. Google, as always, has kept it simple and that is why there are two options from the G.

For those of you who have lost quite a number of posts, getting them all back and more importantly, in the right chronological order, is a bit tricky. The following is a How-To on doing just that.

The tool I use to get back the chronological order of my deleted blog was Icerocket.com, which is a relatively powerful blog search tool. Enter your blog's title (preferably in quotes) and search for on it on Icerocket.com. If that doesn't work, keep trying with the web address or major posts on the blog. Ultimately, you will end up with a link to posts on your blog. Look for a tiny 'Focus' link near the search result, and click it. Icerocket will now fetch you all the posts in the blog that it has indexed, in chronological order.

The coolest thing about this is that you will get links to your individual posts, in the order that you posted them and all you have to do is enter these links into the Cache Recovery Utility and voila!, the search engines will deliver their cached copy to you. You just have to take the trouble of posting them over.

You can also use other blog search tools like Google's own BlogSearch, Technorati, Pubsub, blogdigger.com, and so on.

9:18 PM - Undelete blog through Cache Recovery Utility

Good news for all those bloggers out there who have just deleted their whole blog and is now wondering what to do.The Undelete My Blog Project, in its effort to help recover deleted blogs, has just released the first utility that can dig out the cached copy of their blogs from search engine archives. You can check it out right now - Undelete through Cache Recovery Utility.

This is a very basic utility that can help you recover your blog or website. Go to the utility, just type in your blog address and select a cache source to recover. Hit the 'Retrieve cache' button and voila!, your blog is back before you. However, you can reasonably expect to retrieve the cache only if your blog is quite popular among the search engines and has been around for sometime.

The utility could have been made available on this blog itself, had Blogger allowed me to put the SCRIPT HTML tags in the post, but it is not possible for obvious reasons. Anyway, do check out the site and let me know how useful you find it by leaving a comment here. More info on how to use the utility to recover all your blog posts is underway. Keep watching this space!
