Google Cache not updating since mid of december!!

Has Google Bot gone on a long holiday?

Most of us have been on a holiday and back. But going by the cache dates of numerous websites, Google crawlers are still on a holiday, which decidedly is turning out to be a long one.

A large proportion of the sites we tested have a cache date of December 4th, 15th  and 16th. News sites and blogs are the only exceptions to this. A few webmasters have reported cache updates for inner pages though no change was for the home page. Many webmasters have emailed us reporting the same issue as well.
There is no reason to panic as apart from the cache there is nothing else to suggest that something is wrong. We can only wait and wish Google to come out of the holiday hangover!
