How to Open Cached Pages From Google
If you’ve ever tried to access a webpage and found that it is no longer available, you may be able to find a cached version of the page through Google. Google caches web pages as part of its indexing process, which means that it saves a copy of the page as it appears at the time it was last crawled. Here’s how to open cached pages from Google:
Search for the page on Google:
Start by typing the URL of the page you want to access into the Google search bar. You can also search for the page using keywords related to the content of the page.
Look for the cached version:
Once you’ve found the search results for the page, look for the small green arrow next to the search result. Click on the arrow to expand the options, and then click on the “Cached” link.
Access the cached page:
Google will then display the cached version of the page as it appeared when it was last crawled. You can browse the cached version of the page just as you would the original page.
Note the date and time:
Be sure to note the date and time that the page was last crawled by Google. This information is displayed at the top of the cached page. If the page has been updated since the last crawl, the cached version may not be accurate.
Save a copy:
If you need to save a copy of the cached page, you can do so by clicking on the “Print” button at the top of the page and then selecting “Save as PDF” from the print options.
Opening cached pages from Google can be a useful way to access content that is no longer available online. However, it’s important to note that the cached version may not be completely up-to-date, so be sure to check the date and time of the last crawl and verify any information you find.
