I have a three year old website.. and have yesterday published numerous pages in html and they have been indexd by Google within a few hours... however... when I do a site:example.com although the individual pages appear to be showing ie.. Title - Description all showing... ... when I look at the cache of the page.. I get the following type of error message:-
cache:5krZYXjZkMAJ:website example etc - did not match any documents.

The ONLY page that IS showing although not displaying in the cache as it does live.. is the homepage...

any suggestions?

previously listed and cached pages of the website cache fine...

Showing a cached page is a different process at Google - not the same as being indexed and ranking.

I want to make sure I'm putting these two bits together properly. Are you saying that new pages are still getting indexed but not showing in the cache - but all your old pages are still indexed and showing a cached version?

I am seeing this popup on one of our websites tonight, pages still rank perfect and show in serps but cache results show

cache:5krZYXjZkMAJ:website example etc - did not match any documents.

Maybe they are having a cache issue right now?

hi Gemini23

as tedster said it is a separate process. new pages will often not show a cached version, give it about 72 hours and check again.

drall

are they new pages where you are seeing the issue?

Hi diddly, no they were very aged pages as well as new pages. It was only for about 5 hours on 1 site. All caches now showing.

When it was complete I noticed all the cache dates on our sites were rolled to super fresh dates so maybe I was witnessing some form of data update on the DC I was hitting?

Also it looks to me like the google directory was updated for pr.
