What you want is for Google to cache your site multiple times a day.

If you stop Google from caching your site, it would never know of any updates you do.

hi domesia thanks but how do i do that?

You could stipulate it in an XML sitemap but Really the answer is to have loads of great new content that updates every day and for Google to recognise that and do a regular crawl.

Otherwise you'll have to wait for the spider to come through your site again.

The website needs to be popular with constant updates.

Do a search on robots.txt and .htaccess tutorials.

Search engines use "spiders" to index your site. These two files (at least robots.txt) tell the search engines what they can search and what they cannot search.

But remember that the spider will crawl everything by default.
Only use robots.tx if there's something you don't want the engine to crawl.

Not sure how the .htaccess file ties into getting crawled more often by Google, it's a server (directory) configuration file.
