Does anyone look at their hubs google cache date? If so, how can this help you?
I have never been too sure about how useful the cached date is in SEO other than to check when Google last visited the page.
It does reflect how often google crawls your webpage, but since that can be configured manually in Google Webmaster Tools, and has no bearing on your actual SERPs, it doesn't seem mch of an issue to me!
Googles cache provides some basic information including the most recent date a page was last indexed and provides a copy of the page as it was at that time. So at the most basic level it lets you see when updates, contextual or aesthetic you make are discovered and indexed.
If you are using CSS to present your content to Google prior to navigation the text only cache page will reflect the order in which the content of your page is discovered which might be different to the order it appears when rendered on screen or in code view.
There dose seem to be some correlation between trusted authority sites and indexing speed. Authoritative trusted sites tend to be indexed with greater frequency this means that updated content and new pages will be discovered quickly, This is important if you want to be found through search for timely content or news items.
