Cached links show you what a web page looked like the last time Google visited it.
About cached links
Google takes a snapshot of each web page as a backup in case the current page isn't available. These pages then become part of Google’s cache. If you click a link that says “Cached,” you’ll see the version of the site that Google stored.
If the website you're trying to visit is slow or not responding, you can use the cached link instead.
How to get to a cached link
- On your computer, do a Google search for the page you want to find.
- In search results, next to the site's URL, click down arrow Cached.
- To go to the live page, at the top, click current page.
Tip: If there's a cached page that you need removed from Google Search results, learn how to remove old or deleted information from Google.
