    How long has it been? The SERP can show up before google adds the cache link, afaik. – Maximillian Laumeister Jan 1 '19 at 23:30
  • Yes, it doesn't show the cached version. And what? Why do you mean, it should? – Evgeniy Jan 2 '19 at 9:28
  • Related question: webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/107004/… - However, there does not appear to be any meta tag (or HTTP response header) in this result, that would otherwise prevent Google reporting the "cached" result. – MrWhite Jan 2 '19 at 15:28
  • Its been over a month since its is like this. I have checked the site for noarchive tag already its not there. I am worried because the keywords are also not ranking of the mentioned page. – Henry Jennings Jan 3 '19 at 20:59
  • Google doesn't show a cached page for all pages shown in the search results -- that's completely normal & doesn't mean something's broken. – John Mueller Jan 9 '19 at 8:31

Realize that you can have a page "indexed" in Google but not "cached"

If you do a search like site:example.com/fullurl/ and Google shows a result, it means your URL is indexed.

What you're seeing shows that the URL is not in Google's cache.

With larger websites, it's unlikely that Google will cache every single page. The example you mentioned seems like a website with hundreds of thousands of pages.

Google won't cache all of them, or even update the cache very often.

Here are some examples: This page was cached on February 27th page cached on February 27th

This page was cached on March 10th: page cached March 10th

Are you seeing any patterns for pages that cache or don't cache?
