Preventing Browser Cache

If you're looking for a way to prevent browser cache, this HTML tip will assist you.

Meta tags are used to give detailed instructions in regard to a web page to the Search Engines and browsers.

When you get visitors coming to your web site, your visitors browser will cache or make a copy of your web site for faster viewing their next visit. This will prevent your regular visitors from seeing your new content unless they manually reload their browser.

If you don't regularly update your web site, browser cache may not be a problem. However, if you're continuously updating your web site, you may want to prevent browser cache to ensure your regular visitors will see the latest version of your web site.

You can prevent browser cache simply by including a special META tag within your HTML code.

Add the following code between the <HEAD> and </HEAD> tags of your HTML.

<META http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache">
