No and there would be no point since it can't be searched or linked anyway.

Dave is correct.  The only way a search engine can be "optimized" is when it can actually see the page so that the page content can be evaluated.  If the search engine can't see the page, so far as it is concerned the page does not exist and it won't be listed.

Often times when you are in this situation you should evaluate what is your funnel to get the user signed up as a logged in user.  Is there part of the page you can expose logged out?  Is there a different page that you can focus your logged out users on to gain users that will lead them to this logged in page?  These are the questions I would ask myself to try to get users (Seo inbounds) to this page.
