It does not apply only to news sites like some claim. It is universal and simple to implement. Domain Tools is operating under this guise. My last word on this.
Apr 11 '14 at 16:17 comment added user29671 Have you a link to a proper source with information regarding these allowances / situations where Google allows content behind a log in to be indexed ?
Apr 11 '14 at 16:03 comment added closetnoc That is true, but there are allowances for indexing content behind logins which is not seen as cloaking since with a valid login, the page would be the same. This is a standard practice and has existed since the very beginning.
Apr 11 '14 at 15:51 comment added user29671 You can learn more about cloaking here : youtube.com/watch?v=QHtnfOgp65Q It is Google who insists that showing different content to bots v users is cloaking.
Apr 11 '14 at 15:48 comment added closetnoc Okay. If you insist.
Apr 11 '14 at 15:37 comment added user29671 No sorry, that is cloaking. It is not allowed.
Apr 11 '14 at 14:20 comment added closetnoc With respect- Google does allow you to show content that requires registration to see. This has been an accepted course of business for a very long time and that fact is self-evident.
Apr 11 '14 at 6:53 comment added user29671 This is not normal business, if your pages require a login, you need to show google that same login screen. Or look into something like first click free
