Accessing cached pages

Do you want to view old website pages or maybe your site that's currently offline? You can access cached pages Google is storing. There are several ways you can do it.

Get cached pages using search

Here's how to get to a cached link:

1. On your computer, do a Google search for the page you want to find.

2. Click the green down arrow to the right of the site's URL.


3. Click Cached.

When you're on the cached page, click the current page link to get back to the live page.

Access cached pages using Chrome

Here's another way. If you're using the Chrome web browser, type cache: in the address bar and add your website URL without leaving a space. The browser will pull up the cached version of your website.

Cached pages in Internet Archive

Last but not least, you can use the nonprofit Internet Archive, which hosts websites through their history. Simply type in your URL in the search field.


Once you have identified your pages, sort the results with the Wayback Machine, which works both for current and offline websites. Type or paste in the URL you want to explore, and the archival search engine will show a calendar that indicates when the Wayback Machine has crawled that page.
