Cached link

See a webpage the way it looked when Google last visited the page by clicking Cached.

About Cached Links

Google crawls the web and takes snapshots of each page as a backup in case the current page is not available. These pages then become part of Google’s “cache.” If you click on a link that says Cached, you’ll see the previous version of the site that we have stored.

Where to find Cached Links

  1. Do a Google search for the page you want to find.
  2. Click the green arrow  below the search result.
  3. Click Cached.

About Quick Scroll

To quickly find your search term on the cached page, Chrome users can install Quick Scroll. After you download it from the Chrome Web Store, a Quick Scroll panel may appear at the bottom-right corner of the webpage you're looking at. This panel shows one or more bits of text from the page that are relevant to your search. You can click the text to go directly to that section of the webpage, instead of reading the entire article to find particular content.

Quick Scroll troubleshooting

To prevent Quick Scroll from getting in your way when it's not needed, the feature appears only when we find a specific section of the page that's particularly relevant.

Try these searches to see if Quick Scroll is showing up for these results:

Quick Scroll does not currently work if:

  • You're using a language that Quick Scroll does not yet support.
  • You're using the Google Custom Search Engine.
  • You’re in Chrome’s incognito mode.

We're actively working on making Quick Scroll work for many of the cases above.
