Hi all

I have a site (http://www.regatta.co.za /) which I am batteling to get
google to index it correctly.

Stuff I did'nt want indexed, was indexed (/ui/). so I have put in a
robots.txt file that should stop that.

Dynimac pages that were linked from the default page were not indexed.
I think this was because they have a extension, unknown to google, of
.dp (Dynimac page), even though they return a content type of
text/html. I am going to change this to .asp

My question to all the SEO is this:
I have read that it is not a good idea to return different content to
a browser, than to the user. I want to do this because I have Select
Boxes to navigate to Seasons and to Clubs. These "links" are not read
by googlebot. So I was think of programing it to return normal a href
links if the agent was googlebot. But like I said, I read that this
was not a good idea. Is this true. How dose googlebot determin if you
have done this. I am not trying to cheat the system, but get it work

That sounds like a great reason to place a well-constructed site map
into the loop. Now, I'm no SEO powerhouse like some here, but sometimes
(like this) you don't need an alternative output method to achieve the
same result.

Ah. I just read about Gateway pages, which will do the trick.

The other thing I was thinking of doing is this:

Some pages often contain>100 links E.g.

Many of the links are the same. I could easly program the page to return
only unique links, which would bring the number of links to <100.

Dose Google detect that you are doing this, and do they  penelise you for
doing it.
