Live Site Backup by Cliff Carrigan
Every once in a while you hear a webmaster go on a rant about losing their website due to some “freak issue” and you think to yourself that sucks, but you never learn from it or make any effort to do anything about it for yourself. The next thing you know your site gets hacked and now you have lost everything or maybe your YouTube channel gets shut down and now you are trying to remember what videos you had on your account.
The moral of the story is “Sh$T Happens” and if you are not regularly performing some type of live back up of your web content, it is the equivalency of going to Vegas and betting everything on red or black. It’s a big risk and if you are serious about your business, you really can’t afford to take it. Luckily, there is an affordable solution that you can you can use to solve the issue in a matter of minutes.
Live Site Backup is the latest released by Cliff Carrigan and it is literally one of the easiest and fastest ways to get live backups of a website or YouTube channel. In this Live Site Backup Review I am going to give you a quick run down on how it works.
Live Site Backup Standard Vs. Pro Version
Live Site Backup comes in two versions, ($27) pro and ($17) standard. The only major differences between standard and pro are the following
($27) Pro Version includes:
- URl Extractor
- Scheduler- Run everything 30 days
What does this mean? If you are using the standard version and you want to get a live backup of every page on your website you will need to simply drop in all the urls from each page on the site and drop it in the form.
If you are using the Pro version there is a tool called URL extractor where you simply drop in your domain name (yoursite.com) and it will automatically extract all the pages for you.
In addition as mentioned above, the pro version also allows you to schedule live back ups on a recurring basis, so for example if you want to automatically backup your site every 30 days the system will do it for you automatically.
Does Live Site Backup Work With Videos and Other Files?
According to Cliff, the Live Site Backup tool works with YouTube Videos, PDFs and video Files. I personally could not get it to work with PDFs but had no issues with websites and YouTube Videos.
Here is an example of the url it generates if I was using it to perform a live backup on a YouTube Video
What Else Can You Do With Live Site Backup?
Everyone is always looking for opportunities to make money online right? You could literally have a new fiverr gig up and running today performing this live backup service for people.
Or if you are an SEO ninja, this could be a great new way to get free backlinks to your website. I have not tested it out yet, but I’d imagine if you send some backlinks to the web.archive.org link it would pass some link juice and authority through to the site you are performing a live backup on.
What are the Pros of Live Site Backup?
It’s fast, it’s easy to use and it works great. The price is really affordable and it will save you a lot of headaches in the long run.
What are the Cons Of Live Site Backup?
Well, most people won’t know how to retrieve the files and that’s the only con, but really you don’t need too. All you would have to do is copy the content off the screen and paste it into a new blog post.
