Aticles, popups, and SEO?


We have a free email guide that visitors subscribe to. Once they subscribe, they receive a series of educational articles from an autoresponder. The articles they receive are blocked from SE by robot.txt and our sitemap, so they don't show up SE results (we want users to subscribe before they receive content).

On the main the directory of our site, we do have the same articles, optimized for SEO, and they are indexed by SE. We did this just to bring more attention to site. Most users don't know these are here, although traffic does come into these articles.

We are considering putting a popup on these articles (on main directory) that would create a mask which covers all the content on the page, only leaving the popup content visible. I was considering having the popup trigger after about 5 seconds. The popup would give the user the option (with a form in the popup) to subscribe to our free guide before they can read rest of article. The message would be something like -

"Get access to this article and more be subcribing to our free email guide - just enter your email here to get instant access"

I am wondering if putting these type of dhtml popups that mask the content will hurt our indexing, rankings. I know one factor is that user will tend to leave page sooner because they might not want to subcribe. I've heard how long the user is on a page is relevant to se rankings.

Thank you for any suggestions.

Require some seo assistance

I require some assistance for the SEO on our website www.cellsavers.co.uk We've implemented various efforts on the site: Meta tags Alt tags Header tags linkingto other pages etc. I'm looking to implement articles and perhaps social marketing soon. Would a blog with regularly updated content improve our rankings For search terms such as mobile phone accessories we never seem to rank better than page 2. Can anyone offer suggestions as to how we can improve the site from an SEO angle Any assistance would be appreciated.

Name servers and seo

, I have multiple related and interlinked sites which were on same shared ip. Now i changed host and i have 5 available ip's. What do you think it's better for seo: 1) to put every site on same ip with name servers (for example site1 and ns1.site1 and ns2.site1 on ip1, site2 and ns1.site2 and ns2.site2 on ip2, etc...). 2) to use 3 ip's to spread sites on them and 2 ip's for name servers (in this case every site would be on ns1.site1 and ns2.site1). 3)to use all 5 ip's for sites and name servers but name servers on different ip's and domains (on first ip: site1, ns1.site2, ns1.site3 second ip: site2, ns1.site1, ns2.site3, third ip: site3, ns2.site1, ns2.site2, etc.) 4)some other variation you think it's better... Directly linked sites would be on different ip's of course.

Are "popups" hurting your seo??

anybody here lost ranking after using a dynamic popup/under/ etc - I read this somewhere I dont want to test it myself only to find out its true , The way you do it wont be spammy, its what information your giving to me. Sell me some crap like meds or enlarge my penis then its spammy. But if you really are offering something useful adn relevent to the page then this I wouldn't see as spammy. And thats assuming you make it passed my spam filters and pop up blockers!

Help with new seo

Hi all, I am new to SEO so I've come to ask for your professional advice. I am currently putting a website together for a friend which is hoping to boost their online market. The website I have done is powered by Joomla and is using the seo option to change the urls to look like html pages instead of 1 php script. Firstly I would like to know which is better to use... 1. Domain.com/electrical-training.html 2. Domain.com/electrical-training 3. Domain.com/courses/electrical-training.html Also does it matter whether I use - or _ Secondly, if the company provides electrical training in several areas, do i add a page for each town. Eg, Electrical Training In Paris, Electrical Training In London, etc... Would i then put the sub-areas as text within these areas Finally, can someone explain briefly how landing pages work and should I be using them
