    I'm trying to give the Google Adsense crawler access to pages available only behind a login. I can't seem to find the right combination of settings...
    Adsense prompts for the following info:

    What I've been using is:
    Restricted Directory or URL: http://mydomain.com
    Login URL: http://mydomain.com
    Login Method: POST
    Parameter 1: login = googlecrawler
    Parameter 2: password = password

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    Obviously, I've created account 'googlecrawler' with password 'password' on my forum...

    If they are logging in, you need to send it to /login/login (or if you don't use friendly urls. index.php?login/login).

    Thanks for the input but that doesn't work either.

    Does it give you the ability to view the response from the login attempt?

    Sort of... Nothing useful to be gleaned though

    Edit: Actually it's more like a lack of response from the login attempt.

    So many variables involved, I still haven't been able to narrow this down. I've turned on Friendly URLs (see my other thread posted today) and I've tried different variations like: http://www.mydomain.com, http://mydomain.com
    Also setting Parameter 1 to login, username, etc

    No, I think it'll only work for a specific member who has disallowed non-member viewing of their profile; you could always set-up privacy on the Google crawler account and reference its account profile in the URL! (y)

    Thanks everyone for your help. These settings seem to be working OK now! I will update this thread if anything changes!
