Nevada and California are shaking it up!
9/56 YEAR CYCLE: CALIFORNIAN EARTHQUAKES
Independent cycle researcher
Twin Palms, Blue Knob, NSW 2480, Australia
Abstract: This paper examines the prospect of a 9/56 year cycle in the timing of major earthquakes in California - Nevada - Baja California. These important events tended to cluster within this grid, far more than could be expected by chance. Hawaiian quakes were also assessed and showed similarities with seismic episodes in south western North America. Furthermore, record seismic quakes appeared selectively within the 9/56 year cycle and included such key historical events as the 1700 Great Cascadia quake, the 1906 San Francisco quake and the 1980 Mt St Helens eruption, as well as the record quakes for Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona and Hawaii. Seasonality was another crucial factor as seismic events tended to occur around the same months of the year within various 9/56 configurations.
The 9/56 year seismic cycle was hypothesised to arise from tidal triggering by the Moon and Sun. What seemed most significant were the ecliptical positions of the Sun, lunar ascending node and apogee. This implied that the angles between these factors and the spring equinox point may offer clues as to how this cycle actually functions. The siting of the Moon on the ecliptical circle should also have relevance, although no supportive evidence could be offered in the paper.

Your link does not work and there is no information i the source code of the page to be able to work out what it was.
I found this article and was wondering if this was what you were linking to?
