    bust a cache

    What exactly is cache-busting, and does anyone know how to do it? From my understanding of it it's preventing a browser from loading an ad from its cache so that the impression is calculated by the server-side script that provides the ad.

    I use random numbers to stop cacheing, I use java script and cgi to generate my random numbers, there is other methods, but thats the only way I know how to do it is to randomly generate something so that its not called from a cache.

    Since I can't see what ad codes you are suing I can't exactly tell you how to do it, If you want to post what code you use maybe someone will help you.

    Actually I was just curious, although if things turn out well I may get a chance to utilize that knowledge.
