Is it possible to have good SEO when virtually your entire page is restricted (login only)?

Jeffrey DakeConnect With a Mentor Senior Director of TechnologyCommented:
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.

No and there would be no point since it can't be searched or linked anyway.
Dr. KlahnConnect With a Mentor Principal Software EngineerCommented:
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.
