    Question show different content to robot google and user


    assume, I have to content d1 and d2. In page mywebsite/page/123, I want show content d1 to google(google use content d1 to
    indexing and ranking this page) and show content d2 for user.
    my solution :
    when browser request page mywebsite/page/123 , server return content d1 (In css, color of d1 is equal to background color )
    then jquery and ajax functions remove d1 and loading d2.
    this solution.

    A warning first: In terms of method, what you're looking to do here is considered cloaking and is against the google webmaster guidelines, which could result in traffic loss if implemented. Google can very easily switch user agents and see something is different...

    Regarding your method..google may not be able to see what is in the ajax at all but they will be able to see the jquery , depending on how exactly youre using jquery and ajax, at worst google will see that you're serving them a bunch of content and users a blank page...at worst, they will see that you're serving a different experience...

    If you're not doing this for SEO and just for an A/B test, don't single out all googlebot, just do the a/b test for all users....

    hope this helps!

    Hello!

    If I understand you correctly, you basically want to trick Google into indexing and ranking one piece of content...while you show your users a totally different piece of content.

    A. I don't know if that's possible.
    B. Why would you want to do such a thing?

    Not trying to be rude - but I'm genuinely curious.

    Edit: Ah, whiterabbit has a much better response than me - listen to them!

    Strictly against google guidelines, you should always serve to google what you serve to users without exception.

    Many years ago this was a way for ranking for almost any keyword you wished but it was a hole google had fill and have since developed many techniques for detecting this. Trust me they will spot it and I would expect the domain removed from the index if they deem something underhanded going on.

    Google will treat what is in the iframe as a separate page

    I'm going from an angle that maybe you need a landing page for ad purposes maybe? ...I would leave the page you have as part of the architecture indexable to Google and the User (d1) and create a landing page, that is not part of the architecture, with the changes you dont want to serve to google, and noindex it (d2) Let me know if that gets at your question? If this does not get at your question a little context on what you're trying to accomplish would help...
