    Does anybody use content lockers on a page they have ranked to #1 or 2 in google results? I found a keyword and EMD that could do quite well for me, and I feel my time would be best served ranking it in google, opposed to making youtube videos etc.

    Does the content locker block google bot from scanning your site for my SEO content?

    Anyone do this?

    Thanks.

    Last i checked, G does not process javascript, so if it's javascript-based you should be good. But if it were me, I would place the actual locker on a non-indexed page and let them click through to it from the landing page, just in case.

    Okay, good idea. Well, any landing page that I want them to click through from, wouldn't have too much content on it, I would want it kept short and simple to get them to click onwards. Would I be able to rank a landing page like that? I am hesitant to start this project.

    Google does read and process javascript.

    I have a highly-ranked site with a content locker. Put the locker javascript at the end of the page otherwise any text in the locker will show appear to Google as being the first text on your site.

    I have quite a few that are first page rankings that have a content locker on them.

    The key is to put it on a nonindexed page, don't put it on a page that gets clicked through google or the bounce rate will soar as well as the amount of time spent on your page.

    As people have already mentioned, lock an internal page/link that's not indexed, not the homepage. Usually a download link, video or other item of interest work best.

    Prepare to get deindexed.

    I've yet to hear of anyone get deindexed just for using a content locker. There's almost always more to it than that.

    Can someone explain how to lock individual download files ie a zip file?
    Once I put my locker on my main site(which I have found out is a mistake) the page disappeared into obscurity.
    I'm using leadbolt WP plugin which doesn't seem to allow locking individual files but pages or posts.
    Any help for a online marketing newb would be greatly appreciated.

    Okey , if the content locking happens to be after the description , it doesnt matter that much :)
