To make my site more search engine friendly, I globally changed the dynamic ASP URLs on my site (except for the forum which runs phpBB) to look like static pages, eg.
www.[website].com.au/browse/page999.html instead of
I am not differentiating between search engines or other users - this change applies to everyone whether a bot or a browser.
In addition I automatically redirect 404 errors to my sitemap, but still honor the 404 for the sake of bots.
Do you think that any of this counts as cloaking? I feel that it is in a way, but that it's pretty harmless because of the way I've done it.
Anyone feel that this is the wrong thing to do?
