    Default Whats the Best Way to Keep Your Content Cached?

    Several of my websites have a blog or news section in them which I use as one way to add fresh content to the website. The problem is in GWT the number of pages submitted in my sitemap and the number of pages indexed can have a pretty big disparity. I will even go in time to time and check a few pages to make sure they are still cached and some are not.

    Whats the best way to try to keep all your content indexed and cached? It is mainly just the blog posts that seem to to "fall out" but after taking the time to write them I wish they would stay cached obviously. Plus I always include a few internal links in the posts.

    I have added my news feed to feed burner hoping that would help but does anyone else have any little tricks they want to share?

    Thanks,
    Travis

    First of all, Google doesn't cache pages, it just indexes them. Caching isn't dependant on whether the page is indexed or not.

    You know one thing that is really starting to erk me about this forum, is why do people even respond to a post if they have nothing of value to add? It happens a lot. If you want to correct someone that is great, but add something worthwhile then.

    And if a page is not cached, chances are it is not in the index, hence they are very closely related and for the purpose of the question I was asking can be used interchangeably. I think everyone got the jist of what I was asking......

    I'm not sure I can answer helpfully, I just let Google do their thing. Most pages of value (i.e. evergreen pages) stay in there and to be honest most my blog posts except sometimes where there might be overlap of page titles.

    I have tried in the past with GWT to keep 're-submitting sitemap', especially when I found that new content wasn't being indexed as quickly as I would like. I actually found that it had the opposite effect, i.e. it seemed to bug the 'Google machine' and the content went even longer than usual before being indexed.

    I would always say stuff like a Google+ account can be useful, and other social media, just to get each piece of content first and foremost indexed more quickly and then hopefully stay in there, a few high quality links also help but obviously you're not gona link build each blog post. A good site structure can also help.

    That is not how I interpret the GWT submitted/indexed difference. Google can't cache something that is not in the Google index first.

    In the google search box, I suggest you do a site:yourdomain and see which pages are in the index and compare them to your sitemap and see which pages need to optimized better to get them in the index or to stay in the index.

    So for example, I have 194 submitted and 181 indexed. I need to find out what the 13 pages are and why they're not or no longer being indexed or dropping out of the index after a while.

    This is how I've always done it anyway. There might be an easier way. Keep in mind my pages are static html and not a wp site.

    Index and cache are completely different. I would say don't worry about it, do your thing and let Google do theirs.

    We specifically instruct Google not to cache our pages so that visitors always see up to date content, affiliate links are current, and people running scrapers to copy our content aren't able to use Google's cache to do it without our knowledge.

    Hmmnn, that is an interesting strategy. How do you tell G not to cache your pages? I can only think of the robots file but I would think then you are not in the index.

    No, don't use those links. They are instructing browsers not to cache pages on visitors' local computers. You may or may not want to do that but it has nothing to do with Google or its cache.

    If you want to stop Google caching your pages:

    Code:
    <meta name="robots" content="noarchive">
    If you want to stop Google indexing your pages (you almost never want to do this, but just to prove they are entirely separate):

    Code:
    <meta name="robots" content="noindex">
    What we use in production is this. "noodp" and "noydir" instruct search engines not to replace our on page meta descriptions with content from the Open Directory Project or Yahoo Directories.

    Code:
    <meta name="robots" content="noarchive, noodp, noydir">
