    Session masquerading


    I created a virtual store for one of my clients and I wanted to make it SE-friendly. The main problem is the session which is carried in all the pages and I think this is the main cause for which Google (mainly) did not indexed my site.

    I need to know if anyone managed to solve similar problems. how do I masquerade the session cookie in order to get indexed by search engines?

    I managed to remove the session based on user_agent string.

    If the user_agent contains google (the main search engine targeted) the session does not start.

    Is the session variable required for the user to browse the store? If so, this solution will not help. You might want to try mod_rewrite, or the IIS counterpart.

    Take care,

    I don't think Google will come to shop something.
    If someone from Google wants to buy something from the store, he/she must meet two conditions: to know Romanian and to live in Romania. Because none of these two conditions can be fulfilled, I think that I don't have to worry if someone with a user_agent containing google will come to my store.

    Google will index anything as long as you provide a way to get to it.
