Follow-up: Erol's patch fixing Google troubles

Erol developers test their first Google-patch for sites hosted on UNIX boxes. You can preview it here: x55.html. When you request the page with a search engine crawler identifier as user-agent name, the JavaScript code redirecting to the frameset erol.html#55x0&& gets replaced with a HTML comment explaining why human visitors are treated different from search engine spiders. The anatomy of this patch is described here, your feedback is welcome.

Erol told me they will be running tests on this site over the coming weeks, as they always do before going live with an update. So stay tuned for the release. When things run smoothly on UNIX hosts, a patch for Windows environments shall follow. On IIS the implementation is a bit trickier, because it needs changes of the server configuration. I'll keep you updated.
