When I am on the forum main index page, go to one of the threads, and then hit my browser "BacK" button to return to the main index page, I sometimes get an index page from several weeks ago. It is always the same page. I was just wondering if anyone else had the same problem.
I haven't had that problem at all. What browser are you using? What version is it? Does it ever happen when right click and select back, or is it only when you hit the back button? Also, if you have the forum as your home page, you may not be updating the cache that is stored on your computer. Something to try would be to delete your browser history and cookies. If you are using MS Internet Explorer, click on tools, then Internet Options, then delete browsing history and cookies.
They do what's called "crawling" the website. Basically they index pages and terms to store in their search database.
However, there's a lot more to it than that, because different algorithms are used to determine what the page is about. But, basically they're finding out what's on the page. However, they only see text, which is why our tags system is important because that highlights the most important words for spiders to find.
Yeah it is pretty cool - now get this. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me.
When I signed on at home this morning I saw this really cool banner of graduations and the Eagle.
Come to work, sign on and it is the old banner again - TN what gives??
