Cache links

Google takes a snapshot of each page examined as it crawls the web .Why is this for these caches are used as a back-up in case the original page is unavailable.

Check out the cache of this site See Here
When you search for a word for each site displayed you will find
" Cached " "Similar pages" option if you click on cached option you can view the screenshot of the site i.e if you click on the "Cached" link, you will see the web page as it looked when it was indexed.

This cached content is uses by google to judge whether this page is a relevant for your query or not & is also used to determine the no of links from your site.

When the cached page is displayed, it will have a header at the top which serves as a reminder that this is not necessarily the most recent version of the page. Terms that match your query are highlighted on the cached version to make it easier for you to see why your page is relevant.

The "Cached" link will be missing for sites that have not been indexed, as well as for sites whose owners have requested we not cache their content.

Try it out in the search box at the top right corner.
