Allow spiders but not guests


Is it possible to let spiders crawl your site without allowing guests to read thread content?

It might not be a wise thing to do in that I believe it violates Google's cloaking rules. But, yes, with some custom coding, it could be done.
I do not respond to PM requests for coding assistance.

Ok, how about a mod that will allow guests to read only a few words of a post and let spiders "read" all of it.
Is there any?

Still cloaking and really pointless. All your content would be exposed in the serps anyway.
