    Google Cache

    I have had a look on the forum and havnt noticed any posts regarding this but if i am mistaken, i am sorry for reposting.

    A few of our students have noticed that they can get on any website with google cached pages.

    Does anyone know if it is possible to block access to this.

    Re: Google Cache

    A quick check of a Google cache page gives its address as starting with:

    http://66.102.9.104/search?q=cache

    I should think that if you block any pages starting with that URL you'll block a wodge of Google cache pages. I imagine there's probably some other IP addresses used, too, so you might have to enter a number of URLs or maybe a range to block.

    Re: Google Cache

    i had noticed the ip range they use, i have blocked

    http://216.239.59.104/search?q=cache

    i dontknow how that will work thought imagine how big the ip range could possibly be.

    unless there is a way on cachepilot v3 to block part of a url such as the "search?q=cache" bit. but i have come up empty handedd up to now.

    Re: Google Cache

    There's certainly a way to block the URL like that in Guardian.. or you can block access to pages which are only an IP address - that may be in CN3?

    Re: Google Cache

    I would block
    */search?q=cache

    I know it's a bit extreme, but I know CP allows wildcard

    Re: Google Cache

    Hi

    That didnt work for me but i have just worked out that you can block the cache using

    */search?q*
    For some reason it doesnt like the = sign. As if i put in */search?q=* it allows the site.

    I cant imagine any other sites that have that in there search string and if they do bad luck to them.

    Re: Google Cache

    Not sure if it would make any difference but the text i put in was

    */search?q*

    with a q at the end, but a normal google search url does not have the q part. would this make any difference to cachepilot.
