Via Gary at the SEW blog Ask Jeeves: Cache Includes the Date and Time Pages Were Last Cached. Although it takes forever for Ask to Index a New Site, they added a feature to the cache pages, that shows the last crawl date of the page. So for this blog, the last time they crawled the homepage here was January 16th, or 4 days ago! That is for a page that updates several times per day. Whereas my corporate site has a cache date of January 13, 2006 5:14:32 AM.

Note that this kind of reveals how fresh the Jeeves index is...
