[nycphp-talk] Looking for ideas on how to allow spiders to crawl authenticated pages

This is an awful suggestion, and I do not recommend doing it, but one way would be to set up a google user/pass, submit the url to google. That way google would get in, get a cache and an index. Then you'd have to refuse access for that user/pass pair based on user-agent.

Messy, and bad practice, but there for informational purposes only. Please don't do it.

For some of our sites, many of the pages require registration and login in
order to view the page.  I would like to open up those pages to spiders in
an effort to improve our web rankings.  

I have some ideas, but I am curious what others have done to allow spiders
to crawl a page which normally would not be available to them (since they
would have been redirected to a login page for access).
