Redirecting googlebot in PHP

Discussion in 'PHP' started by schlottke, Jun 16, 2004.

    If I want to redirect the googlebot for one page which includes ?ref=xxx to another that does not, what would the code look like to do this, without redirecting any visitors.

    Put this on your first line:

    if (preg_match("#(google|slurp@inktomi|yahoo! slurp|msnbot)#si", $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'])) {
    
    	header("HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently");
    	header("Location: http://www.new-location.com/");
    	exit;
    }
    PHP:
    That will do it for a few other bots too, not just Google.

    If you want to redirect googlebot only, ensure you're a little more specific than just a referrer that contains 'google'. Referrers can include mediapartners-googlebot, google-proxy, etc etc.

    Yeah, I would put a test for whatever you are looking for as the only thing you redirect.
