Highlighting

Note: Nancy uses this page for presentations on her favorite Google features. You can find more information about these features in other sections of Google Guide.

I look at the cached version of a page, when Google returns

  • a link to a page that appears to have little to do with my query
  • or if I can’t find the information I’m seeking on the current version of the page.

Click on the Cached link to view Google’s cached version of the page with the query terms highlighted.

On the cached version, Google highlights search terms and indicates terms that appear only on links pointing to the page.

Note: Internet Explorer users may view results or a page with any word(s) highlighted, not just search terms, by using the highlight feature of the Google Toolbar, which I mentioned earlier.
