Why Google is Not showing Cache copy of my website?
Akshat Rastogi

 10:53 am on May 21, 2013 (gmt 0)

My Website is well indexed in google, but some of the pages are indexed but google is not showing caching of them. if i am making any changes in the particular pages, than google is showing the updates in indexing after couple of days, but when i am going to check the caching for the same than google is showing 404 error.

One more thing google have also removed the cache link from the same pages in serp. please help why google is doing this?

Thanks in advance..

This kind of thing happens off and on, for no well understood reason. In most cases, the cache shows up again in a short time. How long have you been seeing no cache?

make sure you don't have a meta robots nocache or meta googlebot nocache element in the document's head section.

i'd wait for a while to see if the problem goes away or gets worse.

personally i prefer not to allow cached content - i don't see any advantage for the publisher.

by the way - welcome to WebmasterWorld, Akshat Rastogi!

Even me also getting the same problem. My URL is shows in the Google search result when i click cached options it goes to Error. But the page is live on my website. What i did was simply update the robots.txt, sitemap.xml file and one more thing i used fetch as google option in GWT to recrawl the particular page. Now its working fine and site get live :)

<meta name=”robots” content=”index,archive,follow” >

make use of above code just under <head> and then post your reply!

Welcome to WebmasterWorld, Wox9999!

<meta name=”robots” content=”index,archive,follow” >

This is not really necessary as index, archive, follow are default values. Omitting noindex, noarchive, nofollow has the same result.
