    I have a wordpress site and i want to prevent google from caching the pages of my site. I used this meta tags in the header.php:

    <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache" />
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache" />
    <meta name="googlebot" content="noarchive" />
    <meta name=?robots? content=?noarchive? />

    But google is still caching the pages. What else can i do to stop google from caching the pages?

    You should look at them as 'guidelines' for the bot, not actual rules.

    This will tell google to not index the site. I want google to index the site but not cache the pages because i don't want visitors to see cached version of the pages.

    You need "noarchive".

    Also in your post the second meta tag doesn't use double quotes, it says name=?? content=?? but should be name="" content=""
    Example: <meta name="robots" content="noarchive" />

    These are the options available:
    noindex: prevents the page from being indexed
    nofollow: prevents the Googlebot from following links from this page
    nosnippet: prevents a snippet from being shown in the search results
    noodp: prevents the alternative description from the ODP/DMOZ from being used
    noarchive: prevents Google from showing the Cached link for a page.
    unavailable_after:[date]: lets you specify the exact time and date you want to stop crawling and indexing of this page
    noimageindex: lets you specify that you do not want your page to appear as the referring page for an image that appears in Google search results.
