  • Hi, sorry if this has been covered – I did search for similar topics, and also checked the original wp-door plugin page… but I’m not clear on this:

    With Content Warning 2 installed as a ‘gateway’ to a website, is there any impact on SEO? Or does CW use some under-the-hood method of allowing pages to be crawled by search engines even though end users see CW’s dialog?

    A senior dev recommended the CW plugin, implying that the latter was the case (does not impact SEO). I have no idea – does anyone know?

    Great job on this plugin. If we get it working with all plugins and continue to use it I will def. donate.

    I’m not sure if it does or not. The way CW works is it makes an AJAX call to check the current visitor’s cookies. If no cookie exists, then the popup is delivered. So I would assume the robot would need to allow javascript for this to work. If it doesn’t then the popup would not show.

    Alternatively, if they do, I can use an is_robots() hook to kill the script if need be. Honestly I’m not sure of the SEO implications of using this plugin, but I’ll definitely look into it.

    OK, thanks for the info!


    Anny updates on this subject?

    Best regards,
