Hi I am new to this forum, and to this entire topic, so excuse the newbieness of this question =)

I have two different sites; www.mysite.com and www.mysite.ca, the only difference between these sites are pricing structures. I want to make a script that uses Geo-IP to detect the users country (Canada or US) and load the proper site.

I have a fairly good understanding on how to do this. My question lies in the redirect, and how the SE's will deal with this.

After browsing this sites huge archive, it seems like using mod_rewrite is the way to go. Will SE's view this as cloaking? Practically all of my referrals are coming to my home page (www.mysite.com), because of this redirect will my listings be damaged?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Any example code will be a god-send!

I would think that search engines will never know since most (if not all) of them will come from US based IPs (or more specificly not canadian IPs) and therefor your redirect will never kick in.
