Testing Robots and X Robots Tag NoArchive

This is a test of the x-robots-tag in the HTTP header from the new Robot Exclusion Protocol. For other tests, see the Robot Test List page.

The HTTP header robots tag for this page is: X-Robots-Tag "NOARCHIVE", meaning that robots should index text on this page, but should not display the "cache" link in search results pages (SERP).

In this case, everyone seems to be treating "archive" and "cache" as the same thing. However, search engines may have to archive parts of pages as part of their indexing process, but they can avoid offering access to that archive to search users.
