Hi,
Just been doing my normal site: queries and Iím seeing Google so cache times or last visited times on their SERP's

www.example.com/ - 51k - 2 hours ago - Cached - Similar pages

When looking at the cache it doesn't always tally up with whatís displayed so i guess its last crawled times rather than cached times.
anyone else seeing this?

Vimes.

Are you "logged in" to a Google account when you see this? If so, it could be the time that YOU last visited (while logged in) and not when googlebot spidered.

OK - I do see the minutes on your IP address. Funny, it now says 28 minutes. Why list minutes if you don't keep the clock running? Or does CNN's home page get spidered every thirty minutes, maybe?

Yea weird,

Seeing up to 22 hours on some CNN pages so I guess it shows up to a 24hour clock and then disappears, back to a ďnormalĒ appearance.

But why show it? something to do with the supplemental result tag dissappearing.?

No,I don't think so.
May be G is showing this,so that webmasters can think about this and figure out another updates in the SERP of G.

< moved from another location >

Fresh tags disappeared for several days nearer the beginning of the month.

They reappeared just a day or two ago. The Fresh date has usually been about 1 to 3 days old.

Today fresh tags have changed their format.

I now see things like "7 hours ago" instead of just a raw date.

Hmm. Didn't previously notice this thread. I see those when not logged in.

Hey Guys..

MC just reported this in his blog.

Perhaps it's just G knowing how often to spider/update some sites that are time sensitive.
