How To Find Out When Google Bot Last Crawled Your Website
By on August 26th, 2009

Google Bot is a web crawler that crawls your website and indexes content into Google, this information was earlier available to users in Google webmasters tools.

In the recent changes Google made to their webmaster tools this information is no longer available, so how do you find out the last crawl date for a particular website or webpage?

Well it is not that hard, with a simple search you can determine the last Google Bot crawl date and time.

Steps to Find Last Google Bot Crawl Date

Google Search

Step 1: Go to google.com and paste the URL for which you want to find the last crawl date and hit enter.

google_search_cached_link

Step 2: In the search results instead of clicking on the URL itself click on the Cached link.

google_bot_access_time

Step 3: In the cached version of the webpage you will find the time when Google Bot last crawled your website.

Easy right? Alternatively you can bookmark the link so that you don’t have to perform steps 1 and 2 over and over again to find out the Google Bot crawl date.
