Main article: "Google Groups

Web-based archiving of Usenet posts began in 1995 at "Deja News with a very large, searchable database. In 2001, this database was acquired by "Google.[84]

Google Groups hosts an archive of Usenet posts dating back to May 1981. The earliest posts, which date from May 1981 to June 1991, were donated to Google by the "University of Western Ontario with the help of "David Wiseman and others,[85] and were originally archived by "Henry Spencer at the University of Toronto's Zoology department.[86] The archives for late 1991 through early 1995 were provided by Kent Landfield from the NetNews CD series[87] and Jürgen Christoffel from "GMD.[88] The archive of posts from March 1995 onward was started by the company "DejaNews (later Deja), which was purchased by Google in February 2001. Google began archiving Usenet posts for itself starting in the second week of August 2000.

Google has been criticized by "Vice and "Wired contributors as well as former employees for its stewardship of the archive and for breaking its search functionality.[89][90][91]
