    Hi guys... maybe you can help me out with this.
    I did some onpage changes on my site yesterday and today I already got some negative changes on the SERPS (I was expecting them like this though) I just wanted to test something.
    Anyway... I'm surprised how fast did Google react to this (around 12 hours). Specially since the last time Google cached my site was 10 days ago.

    The question is:
    Is there a correlation between the bot that cache a page and the bot that decide how to serve results?
    Following my example, is it possible that Google changed my rankings in reaction to my onpage modifications without caching the page?
    I guess it might vary depending on the cache control configuration in the http headers. But apart from that, am I missing something else?

    Cheers!
