I am creating a sitemap for the first time - for a fairly small client.
I am surprised that nowhere (that I can find) is there discussion of how to handle content that is only accessible to logged-in users.
Our site uses the typical approach of maintaining session cookies to identify logged-in users.
So far as I can see, there is no way to provide a 'session cookie' along with the sitemap provided to Google Webmaster Tools.
I could undergo the time & effort to support a session ID in the URL, but this is ugly and even a bit dangerous, and it would violate Google's own recommendation.
Again, I'm a bit surprised that I cannot find any discussion of this. How to show content for logged-in vs logged-out users? has a promising title, but no useful information about this topic (or so I think).
How do I support content for logged-in users in a sitemap for Google Webmaster Tools?
