Three modes of your cached page

Full cached version
Text-only version
Page source code
Full cached version
Our Googlebot simulator allows you to access the full version of the page and see when it was last stored by Google. If your page isn't cached, you will see the “404. That’s an error” message.
Text-only version
This mode shows a raw HTML page that is cached by Google. Here you can check how Google sees the text on your page.
Page source code
This mode allows you to see the source code of the cached page. Here you can analyze such SEO elements as title and description, robots meta tags, canonical tags, and others.

Make sure your site is visible to Google

If your page is not cached, you may need to review your site’s technical setup. Check your status codes, robots directives, and more to verify no issues are blocking your website from search bots.

Why your page might not be cached

Many reasons could point to your website’s pages not being cached. For example, you have just published a page, or your website is brand new and a search bot has not yet scanned it, you have noindex/nofollow meta tags added to the page code or used other ways to block a search bot from accessing your web page. In addition, your pages may contain thin content or are generally of poor quality, your page code is too complex or contains critical errors, your website is often down for a long time, etc.

What is Google cache

With the help of cache, which is a type of temporary memory that works in the background, internet surfers can quickly access frequently used data without having to reload that data every time it’s accessed.

In turn, Google's cache contains a snapshot of a website’s pages that can be easily accessed by both servers and clients. As Google is crawling the web looking for new pages to index so that it can serve relevant results to search queries, it creates copies of such pages. The vast majority of cache snapshots are taken between 1 and 4 weeks apart.

Why check a cached page

There are several uses for Google cache searches. For example, you may want to check when the last time Google had saved a page copy and generally how the search giant sees a page, whether Google sees some of the important page elements (like links), how yours or your competitors’ page looked before the changes, and so on.

How to use Google cache for SEO

You can take advantage of Google’s cache, since it provides information on how Google sees your pages. This allows you to address your SEO performance.

For example, you can find out when Google last crawled your page to understand when it will notice the changes you recently made. Also, if you accidentally made a critical change (like deleting the page), you have some time to undo this as Google will store the older page version for some time.

FAQ

How to search Google cache?
Start by going to Google’s search box and enter the website or page. Then, find the three-dotted icon next to the relevant result and click on it. You should see the About this result pop-up. On the pop-up, you should see the ‘Cached’ button at the bottom. Click on it to view the Google cached page.
How does Google see my site?
The cached copy of your website’s pages shows you how Google sees your web page, its content, and HTML code. This enables you to analyze Google’s viewpoint and make changes on your web pages that you can later check the same way.
What does it mean when a page is cached?
When a page is cached, its snapshot, text, images, and source code are temporarily stored by Google. In other words, web browsers keep copies of the web pages to use its crawling resources more effectively.
What is Google cache date?
Google’s cache date is expressed in the form of a timestamp that indicates when a website was last indexed. Web pages cached daily are considered by Google to be very relevant. The search giant re-indexed such pages on a daily basis to provide users with a cached version of a website that is up-to-date should an issue occur.
How long do Google cached pages last?
According to Google, it stores web pages in its cache for about 90 days or until the page needs to be crawled again.
How often does Google cache update?
Google updates the cached versions of web pages depending on how often changes are made to them. The update rate varies from multiple times in a single day to once every week or month.
Are all web pages cached?
Google takes a snapshot of the web pages it crawls and stores it in its cache to serve as a backup if such pages are unavailable. However, not every page's copy is stored by Google: newly published pages, pages of poor quality, or down websites are not stored there.
Why doesn’t my site have cache in Google SERP?
Your web pages may not be in Google’s cache if your website or web page was only recently published and hasn’t been scanned yet, if you’re using noindex/nofollow meta tags or your pages are blocked from search bots, the content on your pages is of poor quality, complex or faulty HTML code, or if your site is often unavailable.
Does my page need to be cached to appear on the SERP?
Having a cached version of your site’s pages isn’t a requirement to have your site appear on Google SERP. Make sure your site is crawlable and can get indexed by search engines. Once your pages are indexed, and everything is fine with them, you should see its cached version in a matter of time.
How to remove Google cache search results?
To remove Google cache search results, log in to your GSC account, choose “Removal” from the “Index” menu, select the “Temporary Removals” tab, hit “New Request,” select “Clear cached URL,” keep the “Remove this URL only” option selected, and enter the URL of the page you want to remove from Google’s search results and cache.
