Images being crawled are not the correct images

Uploaded my feed and am waiting for images to be crawled.

Well, the images crawled are old images.  If you look at the images associated with the products in the products feed, but click on the link to the actual image you will see that the actual current image is not the one associated with the product in the product feed.  The ones in the product feed are old images.  How to fix this.

google may take 72-hours or so to re-crawl and re-cache all images
submitted and for the items to be updated within the products-list.

 

compare the last-update-on date under technical details area,
against the re-submit or re-insert date of the inventory data.

 

verify the image data by inspecting and clicking on the image_link
value that is currently found under information-you-provided-us.

 

otherwise, either change the image file name or add a random url
parameter to the image_link url and resubmit the data -- e.g.
http://www.example.com/images/red-wagon-1217.png
http://www.example.com/images/red-wagon.png?update=1217

 

otherwise, simply contact google directly for account-specific guidance.
