Google Cache Archiving More of Your Page?

Nov 30, 2006 • 8:02 am | comments (2) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google Search Engine Optimization

The Google cache typically only stored about 100KB of your page. So if you had a heavy page with lots of content, not all of that page would be seen in the Google cache. That seems to have changed at some point since I last checked, probably years ago.

Looking at the cache page of many sites, you can see Google is clearly downloading and archiving more than the first 100KB of that page.

A WebmasterWorld thread has reports where Google is caching 400KB+ pages.

I guess space is getting cheaper.

Google cache has been archiving up to 500K for several years.

I first realized it in spring 2005. I estimated the upper boundary to be 512kb, for obvious reasons... When I later did a german search I saw me proven wrong and a stunning 1.3MB result, fully indexed! The cache has been complete, I checked the page. I can't say if the >1mb Documents only have been tests, never seen such large files since... " 1364k - Zusätzliches Ergebnis - Im Cache - Ähnliche Seiten" more here (german language only, sorry!)
