SEO Article Posted by Internet Marketing Speaker on 14-11-2006
Back in October I commented on an article posted over at SEOmoz Blog. The post was about splash pages and Oatmeal made a few specific comments : Search engines will spider the splash page instead of the real content. Search engines won’t be able to spider beyond the splash page. How about that-Fast forward to late October and a new search engine optimization client of mine here in Denver, Colorado.
Yes, he is a professional speaker with a pretty good sized web site. On the first page is that splash page! His first page has somehow managed to get a Google page rank of 4 but none of his other pages have any page rank at all-the spiders aren’t getting past that first page! His other pages have valuable content and are loaded with great keywords-all for naught! If you have a web site that has some similar characteristics-You may have the same issue as my client! Now you know who to call in Denver to correct the problem!
Splash Pages Kill Spiders!
