Ever have instances where a file is spidered and cached by Google are not what you want the world to see? A simple removal of the file or page will not help you to clear the Google cache immediately – you may need to wait for up to 4 months to refresh and clear the cache. Russell in one of the mailing list has a URL pointer which you can use to remove your URL and clear the cache in 3-5 days:
