Is Google cache frequency a ranking factor?

Would it help if Google caches a page frequently? Or will there be no difference in the rankings?

It's more the other way around. Well ranked pages tend to get crawled more frequently, especially well ranked for higher volume searches.

As for difference in rankings the two are not related. How often Google caches a page has no influence on how well ranked the page is, I own a site with a no-cache meta tag that ranks just fine.

I concur - my own observations over months of testing showed no increase in ranking due to me updating my content regularily. My updates increased the bot visits - but not ranking.

I noarchive everything and I don't have much problem with rankings.

Because so many of my sites are tied to seasons, it's really interesting to see the crawl graphs in my GWT account. As traffic builds, the crawl rates go up and up and up and up to what looks like sheer craziness considering these are all fairly small sites. Then BAM! back to normal - or what I like to call "death"
