Google Flash and HTTP_USER_AGENT (The Good, the Bad and the Ugly)
Can I get banned?

 2:02 pm on Nov 4, 2005 (gmt 0)


I am building sites using macromedia flash. The problem is known google can't see all the site content.
So I am using HTTP_USER_AGENT to detect when google is coming and I display to the bot an html version of the site. The html version has EXACTLY THE SAME content as the flash.

Can I get banned from google because I am doing so?

Lots of people use this perfectly legitimate strategy and I've never heard of any problems as a result.
