Get original title, etc for websites replaced by domain reselling pages
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Some references have had the title, etc meta information taken from a domain reselling page such as "This website is for sale!", IABot recognises these redirected URIs as deadlinks but doesn't recognise that the title is different from that of the archived content. See for example the second (line 18) change in this diff. It would be better if IABot could take the title (and other meta information) from the archived content if the current title matches that of the reselling page.

Sorry, but this is way too much work for a small added benefit. The bot doesn't even access the snapshot, nor does it have the structure to save this meta-data.
