Hi everyone,

I have read many of the posts about cloaking but i couldnt find something to fit with the situation i'm facing. I know i'm not allowed to post actual links here so all the links are samples.

Please take look at this situation:
1. I have a website that is called www.mydomain.com and it has a news section on the address www.mydomain.com/news.aspx (as you can see the website is using .NET)

2. I have a list of news links that start with (javascript:_)

3. whenever i click on one of these news links i still have the address www.mydomain.com/news.aspx without a change in the address bar for all different news articles.

Is that considered cloaking? And is it going to get the website banned?

Thank you

If I understand correctly you're just using Javascript to display news articles which I don't consider cloaking but it also won't get crawled either if that's the only way you have to access those articles, assuming you want them crawled.

seriously out of my mind. :) If I'm not wrong you would apply 301 to all of your news article ...
