- Welcome to Geocities.ws
GeoCities is dead ... everybody knows that.
You know the story ... we all do : On late 2009 Yahoo! Inc. announced that the popular free hosting service Yahoo! GeoCities was closing down. After October 26th 2009, all our GeoCities files were going be deleted as the company decided not to provide free hosting services any more.
We don't know if the same happened to you but, when we heard the news that Yahoo! was closing GeoCities down we were overwhelmed by a sense of sadness and loss; it was like, by doing this, they were taking away a big part of the History of the Internet with them, our history, your history.
Like many others, we felt like it was not enough for us to back our sites up and run them somewhere else. Our sites were not just our sites, they were part and they made us part of an idea, they made us part of a community. We had to preserve as much of our community as we possible could, we had to preserve GeoCities !
There are many internet archives out there. They are like photo albums which show you the image of what it once was, but nothing more. Preserving a community involves much more than just providing the public with a set of snapshots of dead web pages, it means allowing the community to express, to interact, to change, to evolve ... this is far beyond what a simple snapshot can do.
So, days passed by and we kept on wondering whether it was possible or not and how hard and expensive could it be. But if we were going to do something, we had to act fast, or it would be too late for us to do anything at all. So finally, one glorious night a decision was made and an action plan was written ... on a bar napkin : we were going to take the challenge, we were going to be part of the history of the Internet, we were going to save GeoCities !
This site was born as a result of our desire to preserve as much of our original community as we possibly could and to expand it beyond it's original limits and barriers. To promote the community and it's grow, we will be progressively providing you with as many tools, means, knowledge and support as we possible can but we really cannot do this alone; you are part of this large community now and as a member of such, you are responsible for it, for it's health and growth. Develop your site, expand your limits, talk to others, get involved, ask for help, a whole community is there for you, know that we count on you.
So now that you know how it began, it is time for you to tell us how it's going to continue, so tell us please ...
... is GeoCities really dead ?

Search Engine Friendliness
A few simple technical fixes can make any site show up better in
The title of a web page appears in search results as the link to that page. Learn more ...
The title of a web page appears as a clickable link in search results and bookmarks. A descriptive, compelling home page title with relevant keywords can increase the number of people visiting the site.
Search engines view the text of the title tag as a strong indication of what the page is about. Accurate keywords in the title tag can help the page rank better in search results.
A title tag should have fewer than 70 characters, including spaces. Major search engines won't display more than that.
The title tag of your home page (and any other page on your site) should not contain the site’s domain name or URL. These will appear near the title in search results, so use your 70 characters to tell people what the page is about. The title tag should not contain any HTML, because it will be displayed incorrectly or not at all.
- Good: This web page has a title tag.
- Good: The title tag is a good length.
- Warning: The title tag should not include the website’s domain name.
- The title of this site's home page:
- “.:: GEOCITIES.ws ::.”
The H1 heading is an important sentence or phrase on a web page that quickly and clearly tells people and search engines what they can expect to find there. Learn more ...
Just one H1
In most cases, a web page should have just one H1 heading. Using multiple H1 headings is okay if that is a logical way to organize the page, but they should be used sparingly. That’s because search engines can view multiple H1 headings as an attempt to signal that all the content on a page is equally important, a tactic that’s seen as an attempt to game the search engine algorithms.
Search engines look for an H1 heading to determine what a page is about. Human visitors do, too.
Content and placement
The H1 heading appears on the web page itself, unlike the page title, which people will see mostly in search results.
The H1 tag (which contains the H1 heading) is usually listed first among the other heading tags for a page. None of the major search engines, however, will penalize a site for listing H2 through H6 tags ahead of the H1 tag.
- Problem: This web page does not have an H1 heading. It should have one.

Your website's robots.txt file can tell search engines to ignore parts of your site. Learn more ...
Website owners usually use robots.txt to let search engines know which pages or sections of their site shouldn't be indexed for example, web contact forms, print versions of web pages and other content that's duplicated elsewhere on the site. Robots.txt can also be used to request that specific robots not index a site. For more information, read How To Use Robots.txt.
Search engine robots
You'll need to know the names of specific search engine robots - or "bots" – if you’re going to exclude any or all of them from any part of your site.
- Google’s bot is called Googlebot. Google is the world’s largest search engine, and is where many people discover new websites.
- Bing’s bot is called msnbot. Bing also provides search results to people using Yahoo to search the Web. Together, Bing and Yahoo are the second largest search resource, after Google.
- Baidu’s bot is called Baiduspider. Baidu is a major search engine in China, and the number of people using it is increasing rapidly.
- AboutUs.org’s bot is called AboutUsBot. To create a Site Report, AboutUs uses crawling technology that’s similar to what search engines use.
- Good: This website’s robots.txt file is not blocking major search engines from crawling its pages. Your website can appear in any engine’s search results.
This website can live at www.GeoCities.ws or GeoCities.ws. It's best for your site's visibility to live at just one URL, or web address. You'll want to create a 301 redirect to the URL you choose from the other URL. Learn more ...
Choose one or the other
If the same web page exists at two different URLs, people can choose to link to one or the other. Links from other sites to your website are valuable — they tell search engines that your site is important to people. By splitting valuable links between two identical pages, you're diluting the power of those links to help a page rank higher in search results.
