Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
I have one that I am not sure about. I have a clients site that Google has a cache of most of the pages, but on checking them, they aren't in the index.
Is this supplemental or something? I thought if they had a cache of it, the page would show in the index.
Sorry if I am being dumb
So don't use site: operator results as your ONLY input. You can also just put the url into the regular search box, and remember the inurl: operator, too.
When i do the cache:example.com/filename it goes straight to the cached version of the page. Last cache was 24th June, so it's not getting spidered too often.
Steveb: I take it you were aware of this already? It's the 1st time I have noticed this.

Everytime googlebot visits does not necessarily result a changed date on the cache server, especially in a timely manner. Sometimes googlebot visits, but the cache server backs up to an even earlier date! The only dependable stat on googlebot visits comes from your own server logs.
