How Often Do Thumbnails Get Refreshed?
Posted by Duane Roumel on 03 May 2011 11:18 PM

ShrinkTheWeb has a "Rolling Refresh" policy to update all "default size" (not custom size or full-length) thumbnails at least once per month. Moving forward, that may become more difficult and take more time as we will eventually have many billions of thumbnails in the database.

However, members who "need" to have thumbnails refreshed more often or at specific times (for a specific task they perform) can upgrade to PRO membership and refresh thumbnails as needed. For small numbers of refreshes, you may use the homepage request refresh or log in and use the "Thumbnail History" tool (unlimited free refreshes for all users).

Note: Similar services claim to keep their sites updated monthly, but do your research! Users of other services often complain of captures more than a year old!
