If you look at the Google cache on many sites that are updated regularly (daily or more often), you will see that the cache date is now within a couple days old. It looks like maybe Google fixed this prolonged outdated cache date bug that they told everyone not to worry about. We knew the fix was coming soon and it seems to be out now. But will it last?
Here is a screen shot of this site:
But I checked others and they are as recent or even more recent.
Looks like month old Google Cache date issue is finally fixed. Noticed today, it is showing cache date of just a few days back. @JohnMu @rustybrick @kapilchadha #seo #googlecache pic.twitter.com/1viyYUGtnS

Again, the cache date is not indicative of much according to Google. But at least if Google updates the date often and the content of the cache often, I can stop writing about it.
It is hard to say if this cache bug is related to the indexing issues, new GoogleBot or other changes.
