    I just stumbled onto this, today.

    I use archive.org quite a bit to check things that were on a website I remember, but the website is no longer functional. However, archive.org doesn't automagically archive all websites, but they now have this nifty feature to force a page archive.


    1. Go to a web page and copy the URL. I'm using http://www.yanagisawasax.co.jp/e_products/view/162/B-9930BSB, because I know it's not in the Archive (well, it is now, but that's because I put it there).
    2. Go to http://archive.org and type it into the Wayback Machine.
    3. You'll see the following, if the page isn't archived:


    4. Click the "Save this url in the Wayback Machine" link.
    5. Copy your archived link! This one happens to be https://web.archive.org/web/2014090...gisawasax.co.jp/e_products/view/162/B-9930BSB.

    One thing I don't know is if all the graphics on a particular page will be saved. Archive.org sometimes does, sometimes doesn't.
