Web archiving

Saving the pages from websites as they change over time for historical purposes. Using spiders similar to the ones search engines routinely deploy, there are services that archive the pages of a company's own website or pages from selected websites across the Internet. The entire Web is archived by the Internet Archive (see Wayback Machine). See spider.
