    Hey All

    On my forum you can view the main page and click on any forum but too view a thread you need to sign up. I want google to crawl and index the content of the threads, is there any way around this or an add-on for the job?

    i believe that would be a violation of Googles TOS. Google calls it Cloaking...

    Not legitimately. Google will only index what guests can see. Tricking it to do otherwise is a violation of their TOS from my understanding.

    Thanks for the replies guys. I think you are probably right, i looked it up and google offers a first click free solution so what i will do is open up the forum and use this https://xenforo.com/community/resources/limit-thread-views-session-for-guests.4840/ to limit guest views. I am within the TOS doing that, :)
