Well, briefly, Squid choose a TTL from one of three ways:

    From An Expires header
    A percent of the object age, determined from the Last-Modified time
    A fixed, default value

Expires is always the best way to go. Last-Modified is almost always
sent for regular objects stored on disk (but not CGI scripts).

Some HTTP servers may let you specify the Expires value in the HTML.
See the HTML 'META' tag here:
