Caching Of Images And Google
Posted 16 September 2003 - 02:14 PM
I'm looking at a meta tag (pragma) that does not cache the page so this won't be an issue. The tag is below...
<meta HTTP-EQUIV= "pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">
Does anyone know if this has any issues with search engines?

I don't think that meta tag poses a problem for the search engines, but I imagine some of our programming types would know better and will hopefully chime in for you.
oops..i see scottie already did!

jlivingston, have you sorted this problem yet?
When updating the xml file and refreshing the browser the new images do not show up.
If not let us know, I've had problems like this in the past and could have a few ideas for you.

Unfortunately, you'll likely discover it has only marginally more effect on the browsers and even less effect on proxies. All you're really doing with that tag is asking "Pretty please, with sugar on top." While it's gotten better in the last year or two, the software that caches your page (whether browser or proxy) still calls all the shots, and too many still seem to ignore the no-cache pragma. You're usually much better off with a server side NO CACHE directive sent in the page header.
