When you have a super annoying problem that Google has been unable to help with... But you stumble upon a link with the exact title matching your issue... And clicking on it gives you a 404.

    If Google shows the link, Google has the page in cache. Look for the cached version if the original page is not available anymore!

    @liveen No it isn't


    has nothing to do with google.

    You can check https://archive.org/about/ where it even says:

    "The Internet Archive is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that was founded to build an Internet library."

    "Founded in 1996 ..."

    Google was founded in 1998 ;)

    @qwerty1337 huh, interesting. I was certain I read in their site that it was powered by Googles cache. I might be wrong though, and I should have been clearer on the fact that I was unclear when I posted my reply. I'm sorry about that. <3

    Or when you find tons of threads on the topic at stack overflow and it's down for maintenance

    Or find a SO thread with the exact title on a hard issue and it's closed for being like another thread that is unrelated.
