Hi, I came accross the following meta tag:

<META HTTP-EQUIV= "pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">

Does anyone know anything about this tag? How does this affect spiders? It doesn't seem to be the normal "no-cache" tag...

Any ideas??

Thanks!!

That tag is primarily used (at the moment) for keeping Google from caching your pages.

So, go and find that page at google and click on the "cache" link below it's description and you'll see what it does.

Air,

That's what I thought at first...however, I'd seen the google no-cache meta tag elsewhere and it read differently...instead of pragma it said "googabot"...so I wanted to double check...

Thanks for your reply!
