Did you delete a page on accident or loose it for some reason? You might be able to save the content. A Honey Bear Playhomes tip...

For those who come upon this very problem in the future and the page you lost is indexed by Google one way that you can look into the past and copy content from your previous page is to:

1) Goto http://google.com
2) In quotes type in the exact URL of the page that you lost "mysiteURL" or search for your site name instead (also in quotes)
3) Click "Search
4) If your page has been cached by Google there is a saved copy of your page that you can look at. If you see your page on the search results click the "Cached" link under your page link.
5) Your cached page will open and simply copy all the text on the page and paste it into a Notepad document for when you rebuild that page again.

Please note that if you did not see your page on the search results then I recommend checking the other search engines as well and repeating the steps above.

This almost always works with your index page and your more visited pages.

I know having to rebuild your page over again can be a daunting task but you have gotten this far and I have no doubt that you will build an even better page the next time around. I have lost countless pages and look at my site and how it turned out. I used each of those challenging losses to better myself and those pages. You will too I am sure of it.

Happy site building
Ed

Great tip, thanks! For people whose sites have been indexed and crawled recently this could definitely work. If the site is still new, and your live site has been updated since you deleted the page, then you are stuck with rebuilding.

Thanks for encouraging people to persevere. Hopefully we can add some solutions for this in future.
