JOHN MEULLER (Webmaster Analyst from Google):

So I assume this is basically around personalization with regards to either location or if the user is logged in or not and google bot sees the versions that Google bot sees basically depending on the location that it’s crawling from google pot doesn’t log in so it doesn’t have kind of this personalization cookie but it does have a location so the diversion that Google bot sees is the version that Google bot will index which means that you’re showing drastically different content for people in different locations or people logged in or locked out then you need to keep in mind that Google bot is probably seeing the default version of your page which might have more or less content than other people sees oh that’s something to at least keep in mind when you’re working on kind of this high personalization type website.
