Partial Blog Preview and Membership

Hi There,

Search engines will not crawl restricted pages for logged-in users only / membership pages.
So all gated pages are practically not visible to search engines and this is not good for SEO.

A possible way to avoid this issue is to show partial content, so at least parts of a let’s say “CMS blog article” are indexable. If the user likes to scroll further down, a login could be required.

Example: * The New York Times will show you the start of a piece of content, but refuse to show you more unless you register an account.

Does anyone built something like this before, any best practices or maybe better ideas to create SEO friendly - Gated content?

Let’s talk about this!
