Are you speaking about cached pages?

To reload the cached pages you can use following META tags:

<meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache">

<meta http-equiv="cache-control" content="no-store,no-cache,must-revalidate">
<meta http-equiv="cache-control" content="post-check=0,pre-check=0,false">
<meta http-equiv="Expires" content="Mon, 26 Jul 1997 05:00:00 GMT" />

(In the last directive use the date in the past)


In fact those META's are equivalents of corresponding HTTP headers, which can be send by server directives.
