Rob: On the Web Since 1996

March 30, 2010, by Rob, category blog

robslinks.com in 2001The web is a wonderful thing. Sometimes you stumble across information or sites that really take you back. Back to 1996, to be exact.

I’ve had some type of presence on the web for a (very) long time. In the late 1990s and early 2000s I made a pretty good supplemental income on the web with a site called robslinks.com, or, officially, Rob’s Christian Links and Search Engine. (That’s a screen shot from 2001 in the image there)

A few years ago I used the Wayback Machine to see if anything was archived of my old site. The site was there. I bookmarked it and forgot about it until this week, when I was cleaning up my bookmarks.

Many of the “state of the art” graphics are missing but it’s still a good semblance of the way the site looked in 2001. Digging around the site, I found a graphic of my very first website, which you see below.

Bleeding edge, right?

You can look at the 2001 version by clicking here. Many of the links still work. Take a look. Maybe some of you remember the old robslinks.com. Let me know if you do.

Oh, and I found out the robslinks.com domain is for sale: $4,995!

So, what do you think ?
