Is There a Cache Rollback?
I think I have seen a recent cache.

 12:27 am on Dec 30, 2004 (gmt 0)


I think I have seen a cache of 27 dec but now I see a cache of 24 dec, was there a cache rollback?

We use to have fresh tag almost every two to three days, now its almost 6 days and we donot have a fresh tag. Is there something wrong? Is cache rollback possible?

I noticed that on the 31st December, the cache date for our homepage was 30th December.

The following day the cache date for our home page was the 23rd December.

I didn't put it down to a roll-back though, just different data centres. All went back to normal a day or two later.

for me, its not coming back to normal in any of the datacenter , its still 24 dec 2004 , I am worried as my other competitors are having a fresh tag of 3rd jan.

Where is the loophole?

Thanks again

I just took a peek, and if it's the site in your profile, it's got a Jan 3 cache snapshot. So, apparently all's well.

Meanwhile, are/were there some problems that caused you to worry?

Maybe it's just me but I don't get it when people worry about stuff like this, unless they're trying to track down a potential problem. No offense meant at all. Just seems like there are lots of better ways to spend one's time than checking one's cache dates.

Its not the one in my profile, I will sticky it to you.

I am worried about cache only because we use to get very regular crawls , we have forums and we want our forum pages to be crawled regularly.

cache date not updating somehow implies that Google is not visiting you, Big G is visiting our neighbour's site every day. I am feeling a little jealous. Also I am curious to know the reason, why Google stopped visiting(crwaling) my pages?

> cache date not updating somehow implies that Google is not visiting you...

No need to worry about what cache dates imply. Log files are a wonderful tool. :-)

Things are not always even and uniform when it comes to what Gbot does, or what cache dates are being shown. It's easy to find highly ranked sites out there with cache dates much older than Dec. 24.

While it's good to be vigilant, worrying about the ebbs and flows of things like cache dates, especially in the absense of an observable problem, can drive a person crazy. I know. Anymore, I don't bat an eye until a site bounces around badly for at least a week or two. OK, maybe I twich a bit, but that's all. After a week of two of much worse rankings, then I panic. ;-)

I had a good sleep yesterday , as I have started getting new cache. Next time I wont worry about these things just wanted to confirm.
