Cache date / Fresh date
poosibly now in alignment....

 12:39 am on Apr 16, 2005 (gmt 0)

I see the cache and fresh date update just before midnight most nights. The cache date/time is usually from just 18 to 22 hours ago.

In the past if the Cache date/time was between 00:00 and 06:00 UTC/GMT then the Fresh date would be reported as one day earlier because the Fresh Date is aligned to some US time zone.

As of today I am seeing a Cache date/time from 48 hours ago, and the Fresh date is the same date this time.

It looks like Fresh dates might be aligned to GMT rather than to a US time zone now (or it might be that the Fresh date has just changed and the Cache is just about to update again, and that I am wrong).


Why does Google continue to use the term GMT? That term was hanged to be UTC way back in 1971.

Well it reverted.

If the cache date is anytime in the first 6 hours of the day (in UTC), then the Fresh date is shown as being the previous day's date (so it is aligned to a US time zone).
