Why Real-Time Data Might Appear Delayed – Understanding Cache

The Summary Report is designed to provide all the critical metrics and reports you need for comprehensive link management, all in real time. Yet, there’s a critical element to understand: caching.

Caching can come from various sources – your hosting, Content Delivery Network (CDN), plugins, or even your browser. It’s a common practice employed by various companies to ensure your site loads quickly for users. While we strive to present you with real-time data, these caching systems might cause minor delays.

How to Get the Real-Time Data You Need

Caching can occasionally cause data to appear outdated for a brief period before it refreshes properly. If you notice this happening, here’s what you can do:

  1. Clear Cache and Cookies: Use your plugin, CDN, hosting, or browser to clear out cache and cookies. This will often resolve the issue.
  2. Try Incognito Mode: If the problem persists, using incognito mode in your browser seems to be an effective and quick solution while your cache is being cleared.

We’re committed to delivering timely, accurate data, and these recommendations align with that commitment. However, it’s always good to be aware that various caching systems are continually evolving to improve the user experience, and in some instances, might cause minor delays.

Please Note: It is essential to consult your hosting, CDN, or plugin providers’ documentation or support teams if you need specific guidance on handling cache for your site.
