Although networks, social media, and review websites have helped us make a lot of our decisions, most of society still chooses the resources provided by search engines for answers. As a site/blog owner, wouldn’t you want your posts or pages to be included in the search results party?
What is Search Engine Optimization?
I’m not going to complicate the explanation of this so here it is in the simplest form:
Search Engine Optimization, also known as SEO, is a “natural,” systematic way of climbing the search engine ladder so that your blog or its pages can be placed in the best position during specified keyword searches.
What is a cache?
A cache is a temporary storage space for pages.
Now, let’s see how SEO and cache relate:
SEO is important to every site owner, because they all want to be placed on the top of search engine results. However, search engine placement does not happen over night. There is a process and time that takes place so that search engines can relevantly place your information in the right spot.
When you write a post, don’t expect it to be found on Google’s search engine right away. Here is the process to find out what Google’s last record of your site/blog is:
- Go to Google (http://www.google.com)
- Type the word cache: (don’t forget about the colon)
- After cache: type your domain name after the word cache: For example, http://www.voiceBoks.com should be cache:http://www.voiceBoks.com
Take a look at the cache result for http://www.voiceBoks.com. This page was changed about 3 days ago and no longer look like this:
On the top (too small to be shown here but you will find it in the grey area as shown above), it will tell you the last date Google indexed your page.
