    Hi,

    Is it possible to distinguish between Google's mobile crawlwers and real mobile users?
    If so is it possible to redirect all real mobile users while not redirecting Google's mobile crawlers?
    My site is responsive and I'd like to make some cash by redirecting real mobile users but I don't want Google to know
    because I'd loose my mobile rankings...

    Thanks!

    Yeah, it's called cloaking.

    It's a rather thin veil for G to pierce, though.

    I suggest you focus on something sustainable.

    So, a proper cloaking technique that will enable mobile redirect without tipping Gbots alarms for cloaking doesn't exit? We can't redirect mobile traffic without a risk of being banned?
