Google cache page size limit change
page size previously limited to 101k

 9:14 pm on Apr 5, 2005 (gmt 0)

Google searches are now returning SERPs showing cached page size greater than 101k. It's been 101k for as long as I can remember.

You are right... I run a site with some public domain eBooks, some over 500k and the biggest
I have seen in the cache on a quick scan:

With advances in Hardware and CPUs; it was only a matter of time.

So does Google now completely index pages of 500k or so?

I also noticed this a few days ago. Once upon a time I directly asked Google about page size limits, and they said they didn't index anything beyond 101k. That's clearly changed now.

Word on the street is that the new limit is 150K, MSN also warned against pages over 150k at SES in NY last month.

I am not sure if Google caches the pages that are longer than 101Kb because I have 2 pages which are 150kb and clearly I can see that Google stops after 101kb ... does any one give me an example that shows that Google are caching pages that are 101 kb + ...

I just checked a PR 6 page that is still limited to 101k. Maybe Google makes some exceptions but the 101k limit still seems to be implemented. Are the pages you saw with more than 101k new pages or did Google from one day to the other increase the part of the page that got cached?

I see a very large sitemap file of 184KB that is shown in full in the cache, and the text in the Google SERPs says 184KB. That file was created in 2004-November.

I just put a 120KB HTML file online about a week ago. That shows in the SERPS as 101KB. The last part of the file does NOT appear in the cache. The file is truncated.

Maybe the larger cache was only happening for a short while, or only happens for certain sites or types of sites.
