Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I see mine has updated to the current last crawl so I am assuming Google was putting this new cache into place as to why the old cache's people were reporting.
I have one question...
Google, why are you spending so much time developing the cache area? Who uses that? I'm not aware of many consumers who use cache so what is the purpose of making it look pretty?
When in fact it has visited my home page several times this past week when reviewing my log files. I guess something is wrong with cache updates. When viewing my site on google and viewing the cached page it indeed has the 13th date. Even though I tweak my homepage with a few minor updates weekly over the last two weeks the cached page has stayed the same when typically it would update in a few days.
Just as a test I was wondering if I used <META NAME="GOOGLEBOT" CONTENT="NOARCHIVE"> how fast googlebot would respect it given the fact it visits my homepage nearly daily and since it is not updating the cached pages as it probably should be. Perhaps if I noarchive the page and then remove the meta tag the next day if I could force a cached update. Anyone here ever tried this? Thanks

Something has been wrong with the WMT reports altogether. We've got several active threads about it, including this one WMT - Web crawl glitch [webmasterworld.com]
