Does Anyone Know How To View Old Gumtree Ads

7 posts in this topic

Hi all

Some of the older posts contain links to Gumtree adverts. If you use them now they take you to today's adverts

The last part of the link appears to be a series of numbers which is the advert ref.

Does anyone know how to use that reference number to view the old ad ?

Thanks

Copy and paste the whole link onto Google search , when search results came out , hit on the cached (in blue) .

May work .

Pretty sure they won't be accessable via gumtree anymore.

Once upon a time they used to leave them on their server even when they had expired now they get deleted after 28 days.

If they aren't too old you may find them cached on Google, Bing etc. as frankturner said although I think Google's cache of Gumtree is cleared out pretty quickly too.

A long shot but....

If you know the date the advert was appearing then try the wayback machine http://wayback.archive.org/web/

Even if you don't find the ad it can be fun to see how sites have changed over the years
