Our problem is that google is not indexing these lightbox pages. While going through the webmaster tools, it's giving a warning that a "redirect" is detected.
Is there anyway I can make sure to redirect users to the main page and open up a lightbox without tripping up google's quality checker? I believe my problem is that google is seeing the redirect and not indexing the content, yet I'm using the method I've seen suggested on a couple different resources such as this SO question: Redirects & Google Indexing

In the end, the only solution we could find was to detect for google bot, and not redirect.
