I know this is a bit of a contradiction but has anyone found a way round this: getting google to index pages that are for members only; or, as I have on one site, pages that are cookied to allow only one page view per day.
Anyone tried, for example, looking out for googlebot in page code and serving it the full page, instead of redirecting to the login or whatever?

Maybe its just due to my ISP (though its a pretty large ISP, and they would have other means of tracking abusers i.e. static hostnames), but for months many of the searches I did would turn up hits on webmasterworld, but when I clicked on them I was told I had to log in to read the message. Eventually I decided I may as well create an account. :)

That would coincide with the message I was getting.
FWIW, hostnames (though not the associated IP addresses, however the reverse of the IP is updated constantly) ending in .bc.hsia.telus.net or .ab.hsia.telus.net will be constant and pretty much assured to be one customer. Most customers will have two hostnames, though some will have five.
