And finally, how DO you find out what the bot has been doing on your site? I am hosted on a server run by a huge telecommunications giant. Do i need my own server in order to be able to observe Google's visits to my pages?
For the majority of the month, recent cahed versions were shown but for a couple of days, last months cahed versions were shown.
I think it was put down to the Everflux effect (minor updates throughout the month).
The find if Google has been to your site, you can check your stat logs. Most hosting services offer some sort of stats analiser for free, so you should have a word with yours.
In the logs, the IP address of the Googlebots will show up (no doubt someone will be able to tell the IP addresses.)
Google doesn't seem to finalise its calculations for new pages during one dance. It often takes 2 dances.
