Casualties of Geocities

by Darren Smith, CFII/MEI

On October 26, 2009, the free websites arm of Yahoo called Geocities disappeared forever.  There was notice.  Several months of it.  There were many websites which became casualties of the closing of Geocities.  This page is a tribute to those lost websites.  Many of which we will never see again.  You suck Yahoo.

My website was not included.  I was a paying customer of Geocities so Yahoo decided for the few that were paying, they would continue hosting these websites on Yahoo webhosting without a price increase for the next 5 years.  When the discounted deal ends, I'll move my website to another provider.

Why? Yahoo destroyed the constant & steady flow of visitors to this website because all the top search engines indexed these pages in the geocities domain.  As a result of the migration to cfidarren domain, traffic dropped from 35,000 visitors a month to about 1,000 the month after the switch.  Six months later, in April, 2010, the website still only garners 10,000 visitors per month.  Thanks Yahoo, you suck.  As a result, I've had to embark on several marketing efforts to bring the traffic back to the website (web traffic keeps the lights on and the website running).  So explore these services -------->

You'll notice that the domain name for my website is now cfidarren.com instead of geocities.com/cfidarren.  That's created a few problems as there are many many links out there which connect folks to my website using the older geocities addressing.  Yahoo says they'll do domain forwarding but I suspect that wont last forever.  You suck Yahoo.

You'll see from the list below that a good many of aviation resources have disappeared because of the closure of Geocities.  While not everything on the list is of interest to me, I'm sure others will miss these resources.  For the web publisher without a hosting budget, this closure was devastating.  Try some of the links, you'll see they're long gone.

I'm going to make an unprecedented offer to those web publishers whose content fits the mission of cfidarren.com or at least my personal interests.  It will cost me money and time, but I'm serious about the offer -- I will be a hosting provider of last resort.

As part of my web hosting agreement with Yahoo, I have 500 subdomains available which I'm willing to give free hosting on the cfidarren domain to folks who would like to continue their aviation related websites online.  The website must fit one or all of these three content criteria:
  1. It's got to fit the mission of cfidarren which is aviation training, learning and safety. 
  2. It's got to match my interests, which are:   earthrounders, round the world trips (planned or in-progress), general aviation, safety, and training for general aviation including fixed wing, glider, LTA, seaplane, gyrocopter, and helicopter.
  3. Orphan information that never changes, or really long (>500NM) cross country logs which are interesting and have pictures, non-airplane aircraft projects, or aviation reference websites.  Remember: the content doesn't change and it fits my interests.
  4. The website was a casualty of Geocities and meets at least one of the above criteria.  It does not need to be on the list below.  That's just a little list of aviation websites on Geocities that I happened to be tracking.
  5. The website must carry the google ads as required by the contract between cfidarren.com and google.
The purpose of the website must to be inform, to entertain or be a reference. It must be strictly non-profit with zero advertising.  If your website fits the profile listed above I will gladly host your website.  You can even use and control your own domain name.  Drop me an email to discuss your ideas. 

SORRY:  No clubs or club chapters, RC, flight sim, skydiving, FBOs, schools, flight instructors, etc.   I'm not interesting in helping you make money -- I'm interested in making aviation training and safety information freely available. 

Disclaimer:  This is not a contract.  What I'll include on my website is my decision and is final. There's no right of appeal.

Casualties - Look at all these websites that disappeared when Yahoo killed Geocities. 90% of which I can't find on the web and are probably gone forever. You suck Yahoo.
