    Googlebot visits, page not cached


    Can anybody explain this. Googlebot visits the home page every 2-3 days, but Google is not showing cache, or description for the page. It shows just www.thehomepage.com

    Any thoughts?

    GRAHAM - Do I pay taxes? Of course I pay taxes, only a liar doesn't pay taxes, I'm not a liar. A liar is the second lowest form of human being.
    ANN - What's the first?
    GRAHAM - Lawyers

    Depends on how old the site is. If the site is new, Google will often serve different data center and if not all the data has propagated, it can give no cache like you get. If the site is old, might be a glitch or something minor, I'd wait a bit to see before getting nervous.

    It has been like this more less for the last 6 months. The site is a year and a half old.
