Google Cache URLs To Be webcache.googleusercontent.com?

Mar 25, 2010 • 6:48 am | comments (32) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Google Search Engine Optimization
 

A WebmasterWorld thread reports that some users are seeing the URL webcache.googleusercontent.com being used for the Cache link in the Google search results. Typically, Google does not use a name based URL for the cache link, such as google.com or the one above. Typically, Google would use an IP address.

But some users are spotting webcache.googleusercontent.com being used instead of the IP address.

If you try going to webcache.googleusercontent.com it will actually load a Google search page. Google is the owner of googleusercontent.com and currently, webcache.googleusercontent.com's IP address for me is 74.125.45.132, which is the same IP I see being used when I click on a cache link in Google.

I have never seen this domain being mentioned before either. I guess it would make things cleaner to use a domain for the cache URL.

I think this is better way to manage a web service because there is very easier to manage a domain address with respect to an IP address for and maintenance work.

Weird. I just found that URL in an Adwords Placement Performance Report. They are apparently serving ads on these pages through the Google Display Network.

HELP!!!  I cleaned/defragged my laptop and now my files from a website (Stickley drawings) cannot be recovered.  Have I "wiped out" my files completely - or can they be recovered somehow?  I cannot get into my account and the drawings are gone.

According to Alexa googleusercontent.com is the 32nd most accessed URL in the world: http://jstnfrd.com/nKSk18, and Google apparently generates subdomains assigned to different servers to manage the heavy traffic it receives. With Google+'s large field test underway, it seems like a good, clean way to share the influx really great user generated content like this: http://jstnfrd.com/rhBsf7

http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=googleusercontent.com it is NOT owned by google, it is a malware hosting site

And how reliable is that source?  Reliable, because it's Google? Look what other website is a malware hosting site: http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=google.com

 Google has a hole in their software. A criminal is running amok and stealing everything he can.I have an Honors Degree In Mathematics and Astronomy. I was an engineer on the Saturn V. I worked for a company that was a contractor for the Trident Nuclear Missile Submarine. My book is in the Smithsonian and I have spoken to the U.S. Naval Academy. Just to let you know that I understand the problem.It is impossible to reach Google. Even if I could, they would ignore it. "There is Nothing is So Blind as a Person with Eyes Who Cannot See."My friends and colleagues understand very well. I have proof which is ignored. Look at me as the kid with the finger in the hole of the dike.

it is OWNED by google. Install no-script add-on and visit gmail. Then you'll know what I mean.

Well, I have not been a good girl on the net in my younger days so there may be stuff on there that others who know me are looking for and that's when I spotted this link connected to a childhood friend of mine who is trying to scare me into thinking the FBI is watching me! LOL!
