I'm not sure whether this is new, but a number of listings don't contain the page size and 'Cached' link today. There seemed to be no pattern as to which listings included the link and which did not. Does anyone know what this signifies, if anything? (Besides indicating that the observer over-frets about search results, that is. :) )

I'm seeing this too. My main site's index page isn't cached but a seemingly random selection of content pages are. They previously all used to be cached.
Can anybody shed any light on this?

I see the exact same thing. I have no explanation. And we are seeing really weird, radical bounces in the SERPs - try from top 10 to 700 to 30 to 200 to 20 all this morning.

Mark,

My page that had no cache isn't bouncing -- it vanished entirely two days ago, and hasn't been back. :(

Thanks for the input Rich - and condolences on the disappearance - I really don't get it. We have literally seen pages bounce hundreds of positions in a few hours. And the really goofy thing (ok, one of them) is that MSN and Overture are still showing yesterday's results. Why? What happened to the cache? It's one thing if Yahoo! reindexes and doesn't like a page, but this looks more like a db problem. But really, who knows.

Perhaps Google is trying to do something about the duplicate content, mirror sites and or the problems some have had with other sites redirecting to your own site (a google bug) which shows up in the cache.

I personally leave the cache off on my site --no archive in robots meta tag-- to try and prevent the above, but it doesn't help.

Maybe they are correcting the bogus cache dates?

My page is listed again, and there is a Cached link. Hope it stays this time. xx <-- crossed fingers

Maybe the instabilities are due to algorithmic changes slowly taking effect within terabytes of search data.

The results are bouncing around wildly.

We had hundreds of pages indexed, now we have three. The version in Yahoo that's cached dates from early November.

I just checked Yahoo again. The hundreds of pages we have indexed are displaying again.

What's up with this?

Same problem, only about half the sites for our keyword have cached pages. Yahoo's out of room, I'll bet 10 to 1.

2by4, a glance at results for several random keywords seems to indicate the 'Cached' link is missing from over half of all listings today. I kinda doubt Yahoo! is out of space, but I can't offer any other explanation.
