    Hi,

    I'm playing around with cloaking that will send a 'not available' type message if anyone directly types in the URL, but will redirect if coming directly from search. Basically, the content is unreadable so, with these type of redirects, no one actually sees it.

    Anywhooooo, I'm having a heck of a type figuring out to get this indexed. I tried pingers, but of course they all came back with errors - I'm assuming because they get the 'not available' message. I am keeping this out of my web-master account also, for obvious reasons.

    I have created a sitemap with Scrapebox, and next I'm going to use it to create an RSS feed with the thought that I can use these somehow to get indexed. However, my mind is a blank on what to do after this, since anything involving URLs is going to get errors. In the Scrapebox sitemap video, loopline made the briefest of references to using a throwaway domain to put it on, but I'm not sure how that would work.

    So how do you guys with this type of site get the site indexed (and preferably quickly)???

    Thanks!

    Why not just disable the cloaking until you get indexed?

    I'm not sure you understand how search engine cloaking is working, you need a real website with real content to get indexed, the goal of the cloaker is to detect if the visitor is a crawler/reviewer or a real person (trough user-agents, IPs, etc...) and only redirect real people to your "money page".

    If you don't have content how do you think you'll get indexed?

    There is content - it's called ***un-readable*** content, which I assume (since I didn't write the program) is readable by bots. Just tryin' to get it indexed.

    So what you are saying is you have auto generated content designed for the search engines. And a landing page designed for humans. And a script to manage the redirect task.

    If that's not what your script does then you have the wrong script, because what you have described is doorway pages with ip filtering.

    Pro tip. Get a useragent switcher plugin for your browser.

    Change your useragent to something like the google spiderbot. then see if your site shows the content for the useragent.

    But to be honest. I am not so sure this would work. From what I read if the content is different then what a normal browser would see then google would give your site a penalty
