Dear All,

I need some information regarding the ASP.NET Website and SEO.(I dont have any sense regarding the SEO)

In my website, when user visit first time to the website, there is a splash page. And until and unless you don't enter email address
it does not allow you to enter inside the site.

So my Question is, Is there any problem of this splash page to SEO? If yes, Please give me some solution/options on the same.
Can we do SEO for Authenticated pages?

There are certain drawbacks of splash screen in the concern of SEO, find them below
1. Splash Pages are Bad for Search Engines - Splash pages generally consist of a large graphic or animation that takes several seconds to load. If you have a user with a slow connection, they may not wait that long. This is especially true with mobile users who often run on slower network connections

2. Splash Pages are Bad for Usability

3. Due to Splash screen user get bounce - The number one reason for getting rid of our splash page was that it turned away at least 25% of our site visitors, sometimes more

4. Splash is waste of time, When was the last time you were stoked to see a large splash page? Right, never. I’d say 99% of users will simply click past to get to the actual content they were looking for

Hi maddy,

SEO is an important conception when designing website yet it is too large to exactly cover even regarding a page.It seems that your splash page is designed to collect the visitor's emails, So I would like to suggest:

1, Authenticated pages will also protect spider from the inside content as Spider don't submit email or password.
2, The URL of your splash page need to be static and unique.
3, The Splash page must be attractive and trustful to visitors.
