I have created over 18's area for some of my more adult products which is accessible from an Over 18 checkbox which forwards the visitor to the over 18 area and sets a cookie to allow over 18 content.
Question is there are over 100 products and I would be mad not to have google and all the other bots crawl these pages.. but as no direct url links on the site exist how do I entice the bots to index these pages..
Thanks in advance..

Maybe some cloaking is in order to serve engines the 18+ content - you'd have to identify the visitor and redirect based on a list of useragents and IPs for each engine you wanted to target - even then, it can get you banned.
I was just attempting to protect the under 16's from some content, but try you best and looks like you get penalised... Oh well one for google to think on..
