I have some flash websites and being flash movies not readable by spiders,
I use .htaccess to redirect googlebot (but also textual browsers as links
and linx) to an alternative home page (index_text.php) which contained
the same text and links as the flash animation, but was written in plain
html and was easily indexed by search engines.
This method worked on all my flash sites (hosted on different
providers) till february-march 2006, when googlebot stopped indexing this
textual page... and index the index.php page as a normal user...
Any ideas of what happened and how to solve the problem?
This is my .htaccess
RewriteCond % ^Googlebot [OR]
RewriteCond % ^Links [OR]
RewriteCond % ^Lynx
RewriteRule ^$ index_text.php
Thanks in advance.
