How to view the cache of a site page in Google
Sometimes you make some changes on your site (in order to improve SEO performance) and, quite logically, you want to know how the search engines will react to these changes-will improve / worsen the ranking of pages or leave everything unchanged?
In order to find out whether the search engines "saw" or not the changes you made, you need to check the "freshness" of your website page in the search index. I. e. it is necessary to understand-whether the page in a cache of the search engine after your changes was updated or not?
A search engine's cache is almost the same as its index. These are copies of site documents from a certain number (usually from the moment of the last visit by the search robot), which are stored by search engines. Somehow it reminds the cache memory of the browser.
View Page Cache Manually
All major search engines willingly provide the ability to view a cache of web documents in their index. This can be done manually or with the help of our tool.
On the Search Engine Results Pages (SERP), hover the mouse over the specific snippet result and click "Cached".
View Cache Through this Online Tool
You just enter the URL you are interested in the address bar and click the "Google Web Cache" button, after which a new window opens Google page, containing the cache of your page.
In the place with a saved copy of your page at the top you can find an inscription like this "It is a snapshot of the page as it appeared on 10 Dec 2019 17:09: 20 GMT". I. e. the web page is displayed as it was on December 10, 2019.
Now you don't need to follow the instructions from Google help. Just enter the URL of the page, click on the button and see the cache of your page!
Additionally, you can switch to the "Text-only version" and "View source" modes, which display the text version in the Google cache and its HTML source code.
