The key is to treat Googlebot as you would a typical user from a similar location, IP range, etc. (i.e. don’t treat Googlebot as if it came from its own separate country—that’s cloaking).

That’s just not always doable, take the Gambling industry I can’t have players from the US, in fact we where told be legal we could not even show the content to anyone that could be a User of the software. So I would love to treat Gbot has a Search Engine Spider and not a human from the US.

Also we had a another case where they blocked the US from seeing another advice site, we got a email from Google telling us how to get our content into the index while blocking and users from the US, do I have to stop that and put up the big disclaimer page again, which the Google reps so hated the first time around…
