That was true then, but today (Feb 14) I have discovered that the version in
the cache was the one posted on February 9.
Not only has the February 10 page fallen out of the cache, but a couple of
more up to date pages have either fallen out of the cache or didn't get
there in the first place.
Damn, because I had a juicy story there and I wanted it found! I have all
the dirt on Arie Scher who is slated to be the next Israeli ambassador or
diplomat in Australia.
As I write the juicy story is still in the #1 position but it will be
shunted down a place or two later today, February 14 (or February 13
depending on your time zone)
On the other hand, I have just repeated the earlier query "nz prime
minister" hit squad (including the quotes) in http://search.msn.com .
My website does not show up but my earlier posting here does!
Of course only about 2% of web searches are conducted via msn, but that will
Meantime, what seems to happen with Google is that a newer cache can be
overwritten with an older cache before finally something actually gets in to
the main index.
It can be aggravating when you want something indexed in a hurry! So far as
potential searchers are concerned, my original story is now effectively dead

I came across a technical term "sori" which was new to me.
After I had looked it up in a printed dictionary I found I could have gone
to google and simply typed
This technique also works in MSN (but, results are not so good in my humble
opinion). I haven't tried it in other search engines.
Finally, it doesn't matter waht they say about your website just so long as

Re: Google Cache
You state that like it's a true fact. I suspect otherwise. Care to
elaborate on where that number comes from?
Search engines might not be the best medium for ephemeral stories.
Perhaps a relevant portal page or an indexed page on your site that
you can add new stories to. Either of those might give you higher
readership results and less stress. Then readers could be encouraged
to read your archives. Just a suggestion.

Sorry, I got that from a TV news story. I should have remembered the
A correction from The New York Times, in its entirety--An editorial on
Monday about the new jumbo Airbus misstated the weight of the airplane. Its
takeoff weight, fully loaded with passengers, freight and fuel, is hundreds
of thousands of pounds heavier than the Boeing 747, depending on the
configurations, not 30,000 tons heavier. It's an aircraft, not an aircraft

marketing campaign at the moment on tv (in the UK). I'm sure it's not as
impressive as google's stats but it's is not 2% or even close to that
