Just wondering if you could shed some light. I was going through my traffic stats/referring websites recently saw a website called ms101.mysearch.com. When I clicked on the link it took me to a page that read:

'This is google's cache of.
Google's cache is the snapshot that google took of the page as they crawled the web. The page may have changed siche that time. Click here for the current page without highlighting.'

I am not entirely clear about what this means.

Thank you

Hi Missy.
Mysearch.com is a metasearch engine that primarily uses google resuls, The referrer you saw was someone who clicked through to your site from mysearch (using Google results) but instead of clicking the link to your site, they requested Google's cache of the page. Google saves a version of each page it visits in order to check when you do a search.

[ms101.mysearch.com...]

If you follow the link above you will see 'cached' written after each result - this is where your visitor clicked.

Let me know if I didn't explain this too well ;)

(Welcome to webmasterworld by the way :))

You couldn't have explained it better if you tried.

Many thanks
