Question: What is Web Caching?

When a search engine - like Google - caches your website, it is essentially storing a copy of a document as it passes through it, so it can be retrieved faster in a search.

Web caching should not be confused with web crawling, or website indexing.

As a blog writer, you want your blog to be cached and crawled by Google. If your blog is cached, it tells people that your blog is established and is a reliable source of information.

What's the Big Deal, Anyways?

If you are a website owner, or blog owner, getting your website cached is a huge deal. Some advertisers will not even deal with a website that has not been cached. They consider you a "newbie" and not even worth their time.

So, if you want your website or blog to get noticed and acknowledged on the internet, you need your website to get cached to develop some clout and credibility.

The big deal is that in a Google world, what Google says about your blog in terms of being cached and ranked is a huge deal. What Google's algorithms say about your blog can be the difference from making some money or not.

And I'm sure that you would rather make some money off of your blog.

Search Engine Website Cache

The Purpose of Web Caching

Search engines save web content in a cache for two main reasons: to save time and bandwidth.

Unfortunately for website owners, web caching is a measuring stick for websites and blogs.

Thus, if you wish to make advertising revenue on your site, some advertisers simply will not work with you if your website is not cached.

So, your goal is to get your blog cached. Time is on your side, but you need to make sure you have quality content on your blog, and try your best to focus on one niche.

Three Ways to Get Your Website Cached

Here are some tips that will increase the chances of getting your website cached:

  1. Time - The longer your site exists, the more likely it will be cached.
  2. Content - If your site has unique content, not found anywhere else.
  3. Frequency - The more your site is updated, the better chances it will be cached.

You may notice that these tips also increase search engine optimization, which is also great for your website.

Cache Does Not Necessarily Mean Cash


Getting Cached is Not Easy

In conclusion, just because a website is cached, it does not mean success. It only means you have established some credibility on the internet.

So, using a play on words, getting cached is not the same as getting cash!

It could lead to getting more cash, but don't expect it. Then the benefits will be an unexpected surprise.
